The makers of Cajun music = Musiciens cadiens et créoles by Barry Jean Ancelet( Book )
31 editions published between 1984 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 871 libraries worldwide
"Legendary performers of yesteryear are featured in this book - Dewey Balfa, Clifton Chenier, Nathan Abshire, Dennis McGee, Canray Fontenot, Varise Connor, Octa Clark, Lula Landry, and Inez Catalon - and along with these are music makers from early days who continue to perform - Alphonse "Bois-sec" Ardoin, Michael Doucet, D. L. Menard, and Zachary Richard. Here too, at the beginnings of their careers, are contemporary musicians - Geno Delafose and the French Rockin' Boogie and Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys - who are taking a secure place in the dance halls and on festival stages." "This showcase of celebrated Cajun and Creole musicians includes more than 100 full-color photographs that show them in their homes, on their front porches, and in their fields, as well as in performance. In interviews they speak directly about their lives, their music, and the vital tradition from which their rollicking music springs."--BOOK JACKET
Cajun and Creole folktales : the French oral tradition of South Louisiana ( Book )
12 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and French and held by 687 libraries worldwide
This teeming compendium of tales assembles and classifies the abundant lore and storytelling prevalent in the French culture of southern Louisiana. It is the largest, most diverse, and best annotated collection of French-language tales ever published in the United States. Side by side are dual-language retellings - the Cajun French and its English translation - along with insightful commentaries. This volume reveals the long and lively heritage of the Louisiana folktale among French Creoles and Cajuns and shows how tale-telling in Louisiana has remained vigorously and constantly changing. Some of the best storytellers of the present day are highlighted in biographical sketches and are identified by some of the best tales. Their repertory includes animal stories, magic stories, jokes, tall tales, Pascal (improvised) stories, and legendary tales - all of them colorful examples of Louisiana narrative at its best. Though greatly transformed since the French arrived on southern soil, the French oral tradition is alive and flourishing today. It proves to be even more complex and varied than has been shown in previous studies, for revealed here are African influences as well as others that have been filtered from America's multicultural mainstream

Second line rescue : improvised responses to Katrina and Rita by Marcia G Gaudet( Book )
7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 148 libraries worldwide
"Second Line Rescue chronicles the brave and creative acts through which Gulf Coast people rescued their neighbors during the chaotic aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Ordinary citizens joined in with whatever resources they had. Unlike many of the official responders, vernacular rescuers found ways around the paralysis. They were able to dispel unfounded fears produced by erroneous or questionable reporting. The essays, personal narratives, media reports, and field studies presented here all have to do with effective and often ingenious answers that emerged from the people themselves. The first part of the collection deals with Gulf Coast rescuers from outside stricken communities: those who, safe in their own homes and neighborhoods, marshaled their resources to help their fellow citizens. The second part features the words of hurricane survivors displaced from New Orleans and other Gulf Coast communities to Houston, Texas. In many cases, the "victims" themselves were the first responders, rescuing family, friends, and strangers. All of the stories, whether from the "outside" or "inside" responders, reveal a shared history of close-knit community bonds, survival skills sharpened by hard times, and what went right in the aftermath of Katrina and Rita--in spite of all that went so wrong"--

Cajuns NO12 ( file )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 20 libraries worldwide
The Cajuns are an ethnic minority of the United States who have lived mainly in south-central and southwestern Louisiana since the late eighteenth century. The term generally applies to the descendants of the French Acadians who migrated from Canada to Louisiana. This file includes eighteen documents and covers the period from the late eighteenth century to the 1980s. These documents include a heavy emphasis on cultural history and the Cajun concept of ethnic identity. Probably the best general ethnography for the file is Ancelet which presents a comprehensive study of Acadian/Cajun cultural history from the early seventeenth century in Nova Scotia to the present day in Louisiana. It also includes contemporary data on family religion, folk medicine and law, architecture, foodways, music, games, and oral literary traditions. Esman provides an ethnographic survey of the community of Henderson, La. which includes data on the history of the community, its economy, restaurants, family life, sex roles, social life, religion, politics, play and leisure activities, and relations with neighboring communities and with other ethnic minority groups
