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

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.
