Creole Heritage Folklife Center

The Creole Heritage Folklife Center in Opelousas offers the public an opportunity to relive traditions of the African-American community with folklorist, Rebecca Henry. Henry is a native to St. Landry Parish and offers educational programs and events that focus on Creole heritage. Learn about the use of herbs and folk medicine, everyday tools, home-life, and folk art. In the gift shop find handsewn quilts, homemade soaps and potpourri, preserves, handcrafted dolls, and artwork. Guided tours offered weekly and by appointment. The Creole Heritage Folklife Center is included on the Louisiana African-American Heritage Trail.

Wait, what is Creole? According to Creole Heritage Inc. founder, Rebecca Henry, "'Creole' is family, culture, heritage and tradition which embodies all that connects the inner and outer families with their ancestral past, not a racial confusion."
