Keepers of the Mound

Louisiana’s coast is dotted with hundreds of mounds that were built by indigenous people hundreds of years ago. Coastal erosion and subsidence is a constant threat to these sacred grounds and cultural heritage is not a renewable resource. Keepers of the Mound, a short documentary film produced by Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities will be shown at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, October 24 at the Jeanerette Museum. Following the film viewing, a discussion and a brief talk about the Indian Mounds found along Bayou Teche will be led by University of Louisiana Lafayette Professor Mark Rees. Keepers of the Mound is being held free of charge and is suitable for an adult audience. The local Water/Ways exhibit project is a part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities made possible through funding from the Walton Family Foundation. This program is also sponsored by the Friends of the Jeanerette Museum. For more information on this event visit, email [email protected], like the museum on Facebook or call Gail at 337-380-9057. The museum is located at 500 E. Main Street on the corner of Main Street and Moresi Alley in Jeanerette, LA.
