#003: Mardi Gras Indians


Mardi Gras Indians Podcast #3 Mardi Gras Indians / New Orleans, LA
February 24th, 2009

On this particular Mardi Gras morning, a couple of friends and I stumbled upon a small group of Mardi Gras Indians congregated at The Porch 7th Ward Cultural Center. From there, we ditched our bikes and joined the parade. Special thanks to Elijah Chong for the beautiful photography that accompanies this podcast. Click here for the enhanced version.

Taylor Lasseigne – Slices of America Webmaster / I was born and raised in the south Louisiana coastal parish of Lafourche. There, I was exposed to the good Cajun people, a bounty of amazing foods, an easygoing way of life, and a lush “sportsman’s paradise” where I first learned to appreciate nature. From a young age, I always showed interest in music. In my college years, after percolating through several state schools, I took a position as a high school music teacher in New Orleans. While music education is my calling, photography has always been a fun escape for me. I enjoy peering through a lens to document our world, and I hope that I can continue to share this pastime with others through Slices of America. / e-mail: taylor at
