The United Houma Nation‘s oral history poster project will debut at the Jean Lafitte Acadian Wetland Center on September 4, 2010 from 2:00-4:30 p.m. The event, free and open to the public, will include intertribal dancing, a presentation on the history of the United Houma Nation by tribal historian Mike Dardar, and an “unveiling” of the posters. There will be light refreshments and time to meet the people who contributed oral histories to the project afterward. The project is a collaboration between the United Houma Nation’s tribal council, the University of New Orleans’ Neighborhood Story Project, and Side by Side Community Projects, Australia.
