Mon Cher Camarade - $25.00

Mon Cher Camarade tells the story - never before told - of the French-speaking Cajun soldiers in WWII. Hundreds of French-Louisiana Cajuns served as interpreters for their field commanders and several of them were secret agents who passed as locals to work with the French underground. This documentary blends an original music sound track, 35mm film footage and HD interviews with stunning archival footage from the National Archives in a storytelling fashion that puts the storytelling where it belongs - on the shoulders of those veterans.

Native Waters: A Chitimacha Recollection (Director’s Cut) - $25.00

Through a small tribe known as "the People of Many Waters," we offer an alternative way of recalling Native American history - Chitimacha history. These Native Americans are among the first people of Louisiana, heirs of an unbroken 8,000 year past in their native coastal region of the Atchafalaya Basin of Louisiana. Living off the bounty of one of the richest inland estuaries on the continent, this indigenous nation persists and rejuvenates its culture while losing its ancestral territory to forces other than conquest. Through Native Waters: A Chitimacha Recollection, we journey into sacred places of the Basin with author and keeper of his family's oral tradition Roger Stouff, a fisherman descended from "a long and distinguished lineage of fishermen within a nation of fishermen," as he provides native stories, beliefs and perspectives about this important and often overlooked people.

Outreach for Training for Firefighters and Safety Educators - $25.00

Every year thousands of Americans risk personal injury, property damage and loss of life due to fire and other natural disasters. Firefighters and safety educators serve as vital resources to their communities in helping avoid these risks.
