Former Southeastern Louisiana University professor Francis Broussard shares his knowledge and understanding of Choctaw and other indigenous cultures native to the Florida Parishes of Louisiana in a new lecture series presented January through March at the Abita Springs Trailhead Museum.
Broussard's focus on symbolism and iconography offer insight into the Choctaw culture and lifestyle through artifacts found at archaeological sites and nearby locations. Joining Francis at each event will be Louisiana State Archaeologist Chip McGimsey, whose findings from the Talisheek and Blade Core archaeological dig sites were quite revealing.
The events are 4-5:30 p.m. on January 15, February 26 and March 26. Admission is free, but seating is limited, so it is recommended to arrive early.
