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.

The two series, Facts on Fire! and Situation:Disaster!, produced by Louisiana Public Broadcasting, were designed to provide valuable information to targeted and general audiences on how to protect themselves, their families and their property from fire and seven other natural disasters.

The two programs, Using the Facts on Fire! Series for Outreach and Using the Situation:Disaster! Series for Outreach, demonstrate how firefighters and safety educators can most effectively incorporate segments from the two series into a community presentation.

Hosted by Sonny Cudd, a firefighter with the LSU Fire and Emergency Training Institute and a co-host of Facts on Fire!, these two "how-to" programs illustrate the versatility and user-friendly design of the two series and help firefighters better plan for their next community outreach event.
