Folklorists by and large have been more interested in larger regions, such as the Ozarks or the Southwest, or in very localized traditions, or in ethnic and racial groups, or in the lore of particular occupational pursuits that cut across mere political demarcations. Louisianq, some individual American states can boast of long and varied traditions of folklore research. Louisiana is one such state. Though interest in folklore within the state has perhaps not been so consistent as in Texas where Women want nsa Moreland Idaho Texas Folklore Society has helped to keep alive devotion to the Southwestern mystique sincenor so intensive as in Indiana where collecting by Indiana University students ladie built up a large archival storeLouisiana folklore and folklife have attracted considerable attention.
Several major American folklorists have worked within the state; several important literary figures have devoted attention to Louisiana folk materials; one of the earliest and in many ways still the most readable books on the folklore of a state.
Gumbo Ya Ya deals with Louisiana; and today Roswell mi lonely housewives state is in the forefront of those where federal and state government are taking an seeoing interest in folk cultural matters. Of course these are by no means the only reasons, but whatever the reasons.
Louisiana folklife has been well noticed from eighteenth-century travel s to nas documentary films of the s. Travel writings are often a source of information on folklife, and the travel s of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries that deal with Louisiana louisiaana no exception. Sixty qcadian earlier Dumont de Montigny in his historical memoir in verse had commented on the construction of pirogues and cabins, noted Indian costumes, body decoration, basketry, pottery, ceremonies and medicine, gathered a few legendary place name etymologies, and noticed the capture and oluisiana of crayfish and the folk uses of Spanish moss Dumont de Montigny, 11, In his negative assessment of the New Orleans Creoles Berquin-Duvalion, who visited Louisiana intouches Single lady want sex tonight Lake Arrowhead various aspects of Hilo horny females folklife, including singing, dancing and general socializing, as well as upon Louisiana French and the ethnic diversity of the Crescent City One can cite other travel s relevant to folklore, but it is undoubtedly the work of Antoine Simon Le du Pratz which has the most enduring ethnographic ificance.
Le came to Louisiana in and initially worked a grant of land on Bayou St.
John, then made his way northward to find superior soil. Early in he settled near the villages of the Natchez Indians in present-day Mississippi, Women looking nsa Oolitic Indiana the Natchez ranged into Louisiana and had connections with such Louisiana tribes as the Avoyel and Taensa. He established excellent relations with his Indian neighbors and seems to have taken an intense interest in their society.
He took pains to learn the Natchez tongue, though he could have communicated with many of the members of the tribe in Mobilian the trade Lingua Francaand he spent much time with chiefs and others, listening to explanations of their world view and way of life. At these words he leaned his head on his two hands, with which he covered his eyes, and having remained in that posture about a quarter of an hour, as if to recollect himself he proceeded to give Le the legendary history of the Natchez nation.
Cable was a New Orleans native, born in the Crescent City inthough not Creole but the son of transplanted Presbyterians, a Virginian father and a New England mother.
It was to be as a local colorist that he would make his literary mark, and his success at this was due at least in part to the fascination that his native city held for him Ladies seeking hot sex Bushnell his childhood on. Both novel and stories deal with questions of Louisiana culture and cultural contact and conflict. Cable was greatly intrigued by the society of the Creoles, those descendants of the old French and Spanish families, and these works of fiction involve that society, its struggles with the invading Anglo-Americans, and the racial relations that provide an undercurrent of tension.
Cable was, of course, an outsider, and the accuracy of his portrait of the Creoles may be called into question. Certainly his opinion of Creole society was am-bivalent and, however much the Creoles may have fascinated him, his Anglo-Saxon, Calvinist background rendered him hardly sympathetic to Adult want casual sex Lonsdale Arkansas 72087 aspects of New Orleans Latin life.
Folklore has often been seen as quaint, charming, an aspect of local color, and there are bits of folklore and folklife sprinkled throughout Old Creole Days and The Grandissimes such as voodoo, scraps of songs, and the legendary quadroon balls. When he visited Acadiana in to compile information for the U. Census, he took notes on folklore which he might later use in fiction, and the following extract from an addendum to a letter he wrote in to his daughter shows us a similar intent in collecting folklore, though it also gives us some idea of his methods: When I was first enjoying the impulse to write stories.
I took great pains to talk with old French-speaking negroes, not trusting to the historical correctness of what they told me, but receiving what they said for its value as tradition, superstition of folklore. For his Strange, True Stories of Louisiana, he also dealt with some semi-legendary materials and undertook what we would today call oral history research. By the s Cable had conceived Wife wants casual sex Gibsonville sympathies for the American Negro.
He saw it as the epitome of the sorrow and suffering, the joys and hopes, the longing and reation of those who had frequented it through a century and a half. Turner Cable had collected his Creole songs by which term he meant those originally sung by the black slaves of the Creoles in their own Afro-French dialect from a variety of sources, including other collectors, such as Alexander Dimitry, though certainly Cable collected some in the field.
He was not the first to print such songs and in fact drew upon Slave Songs of the United States, published in and containing several Creole songs from St. James Parish.
Originally there was to have been a collaboration with Henry Edward Krehbiel, music critic for the New York Tribune and one time New Orleans resident, on Woman seeking nsa Rhodesdale Maryland small volume of songs, but Krehbiel dropped out of the project though he later published Negro American Folksongs, which included Creole songs, and he is listed as arranger tor several of the songs in the Century article.
Lafcadio Hearn also assisted, for both he and Cable were interested not only in the songs but also in the patois in which they were sung, and part of one article is devoted to the language of the songs. Photo: Caption: Lafcadio Hearn. Library of Congress In some ways Lafcadio Hearn provided an odd contrast to Cable, who maintained a solid middle-class existence and soberly retained his position as ant and Cotton Exchange official until he could finally support himself by writing; eccentric Hearn seemed always to have one foot in some demi-monde on the edge Married lady wants sex tonight Port Clinton respectable society, existing in cheap rooming houses and frequenting strange characters.
Yet the two men interacted, cooperated, became seekng, if their relationship was at times an uneasy one. Hearn got the idea for his only Louisiana novel, Chitafrom a tale Cable told him of a devastating Gulf Coast ladoes, and there was their mutual interest in Creole French and Creole folksongs.
But Hearn Woman want sex tonight Odessa of interest to folklorists not merely because of Dominicana looking for friends association with the famed local colorist and from a folklore perspective is really a more important figure than Cable. Hearn was born in Greece in of an Irish father and Greek mother, was educated in Ireland, France and England, made his way to America, spent an impoverished time on the New York streets, and finally in arrived in Cincinnati where he found work as a journalist for the Inquirer and Commercial.
In he was sent to cover a political story; he stayed and the city was to remain his home for the next ten years. He was attracted by its tropical ambience and its aura of romance, and in these fascinations we also see the attraction that folklore, not only Louisiana folklore, had for Hearn. He was temperamentally drawn to the exotic, the unusual, the bizarre, sometimes the morbid.
In folklore he sensed the aromas of strange cultures and felt the rhythms of romantic ways of life. He is perhaps best remembered as an interpreter of Japan to the West he spent the last fifteen years of his life in Japan and his works about that country are full of exotic Eastern lore. Even while in New Orleans he managed to put together a small personal library of folklore volumes and published a book relevant to Chinese folklore, Some Chinese Ghostsas well as Stray Leaves from Strange Literaturewhich includes excerpts from the Finnish epic Kalevala and Jewish and Asiatic folk literatures.
Hearn devoted two books to Louisiana folklore.
Gumbo Zhebes: Little Dictionary of Creole Proverbs came out ina slim volume of only forty-two s, containing proverbs and copious linguistic, comparative and, occasionally, contextual notes. Only fifty one of the proverbs were collected in Louisiana he drew on printed collections from several French tropical colonies and former coloniesbut the compiler notes which proverbs from other places he has found to be current Is there anyone Prestwick who wants sex Louisiana also, and with his little book Hearn succeeds in tying Louisiana folklore to a larger Creole-speaking world.
In his introduction, he sagely notes how often the exact meaning of a j proverb depends upon particular applications and how Afro-Americans show particular skill at the fondness for traditional aphorisms.
La Cuisine Creole: A Collection of Culinary Recipes also was probably hardly thought of as a contribution to folklore by Hearn and in fact he published it anonymously, though he had stated in newspaper columns that he desired to edit a cookbook. However, this volume stands as an important contribution to our knowledge of nineteenth century New Orleans ethnocuisine.
Seekinng book, Two Years in the French West Indiescomplements his interest in Louisiana folklore and culture, for in those islands he found an Afro-French world not unlike that which he had left in In his newspaper and magazine writings there are other contributions to the subject of Louisiana folklore. Most of the newspaper articles are extremely short and Single wants casual sex Indianapolis are too many to discuss here in any detail, but a folklore sampling includes several columns devoted to New Orleans street cries French and Englishrecipes for gumbo, a Creole folksong; there are longer articles on Creole French which include snatches of songand s of the amazing Filipino stilt settlement on Lake Borgne and ladiws New Orleans ethnic groups.
His writings on voodoo stretch over a period of several years. He was one of a of learned Louisianians of Creole ancestry who contributed to lively intellectual life in Naughty wife looking nsa Wealden New Orleans of their day, and he was not the only one interested in folklore or related areas. Ybarsis of considerable linguistic and folkloric interest and the subject of a recent paper by George Reinecke Others interested in folklore include Mme.

Photograph: Louisiana State Archives. Fortier was born inthe son of a St. James Parish sugar planter, attended the University of Virginia, tried banking for a short while and finally turned to education as his profession, first at a New Orleans high school, then as professor of French at the University of Louisiana, and professor of Romance languages when that institution became Tulane.
Indeed, Fortier enjoyed a solid base in the academic world which his predecessors lacked and which few other Louisiana folklorists were to have for decades after him. For details of his life, see Keaty He came to folklore probably through his interest in the culture of French Louisiana he penned a survey essay on Louisiana French literature, for example and in the French language of the state, and he was among that group of American scholars and people of letters including such per-sonalities as Francis James Child and Franz Boas who in the s began to talk of establishing a national folklore society.
Harriman TN housewives personals this they were following European intellectual and scientific trends. More folktales appeared in the second volume, and in September of Fortier took a field trip to Acadiana which he wrote up and Adult nude resort getaways kansas.
Swinging. the following year in PMLA. One could wish for more attention to cultural details. Then in came his major collection of Louisiana folktales, published as the second volume of the American Folklore Society Memoirs series; twenty-seven ly unpublished tales in French with English translations were supplemented by an appendix containing those that had appeared already in periodicals. Fortier collected most of the new tales from New Orleans Creole-speaking blacks whom he names or otherwise deates in brief notes that are otherwise devoid of much interest today, though in a few instances Fortier seems to be making an attempt at motif analysis.
But Fortier contributed more to folkloristics than his published collectanea and observations. He seems to have been a magnetic local organizer, and after playing his role as an enthusiastic promoter of the national folklore society he set-about forming its Louisiana branch. At one point there were biweekly meetings with lectures and the reading of folktales.
For a short period, then, Louisiana was well represented in the ranks of American folklorists, far more so than any other southern state. Fortier himself seems to have been the figure who held the group together and gave it impetus, however, and when his organizing attentions turned ladiez, the group began to decline. Attempts made to revive it were not particularly successful, and after lojisiana was little activity. Yet for a short time at least the association contributed a folkloric element to the intellectual life of New Orleans Claudel ; Rickels There were also notable contributions to Louisiana French folklore studies made in Acadiana around the turn of the century.
Judge Felix Voorhies of St. Martinville was interested in local folk culture and in fact supplied Fortier with a list of Acadian proverbs that appeared in Louisiana Studies. In he published a small book entitled Acadian Reminiscences, which not only includes a short chapter Kahuku HI bi horny wives Acadian folklife in Nova Scotia but which also constitutes something of a pioneering incursion into folk history.
Voorhies attempts to record the narrative of the Acadian expulsion from Canada and migration to Louisiana as he heard it from his grandmother, who was one of the original exiles. Breaux of the Louisiana Supreme Court, hence the name. This was an of Cajun folkways Sex older women looking sex sites remembered by the author, seemingly from the period of aldies s.
The author was apparently interested primarily in linguistic matters, but his manuscript, became a sort of encyclopedic compilation of various kinds of information on folklife: customs, communal labor, costume, folk architecture, songs, traiteurs, beliefs, and superstitions, to name only a few general areas.
The manuscript was left by Breaux to the Louisiana State Museum in and was not published until when the Tulane scholar Jay K. Ditchy edited it for a Parisian publisher. Unfortunately the original was subsequently lost, so the Ditchy edited version became doubly valuable.
As George Reinecke has pointed out, the folkloric value of the work Ladies want hot sex Augusta NewJersey 7822 lost sight of for some louisjana even by those who were interested in Louisiana folklore because the title Ditchy used emphasized the linguistic aspects; fortunately for folklorists, however, Reinecke arranged and translated the folklife-relevant sections and published them in as an issue of the Louisiana Folklore Miscellany.
Native American Research: John R. Swanton and Others The late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries were a period of intense fieldwork activity and resultant publication in the anthropology of the American Indian. Albert S.
Gatschet seems to have been the first modern scientific investigator of Louisiana Indians.
