Creole Heritage Folklife Center, Opelousas, Louisiana

The Creole Heritage Folklife Center in Opelousas is holding Creole French speaking classes on Thursdays. If you ever had a question about Creole culture or wanted to expand your linguistic knowledge, this museum is where you need to be. This six week workshop is $75 for all six classes, or $15 per class if there’s space available.

Register today with your teacher Rebecca Henry, Creole folklorist and Leonville native. Join her as she seeks to preserve the traditions of African American and Creole heritage through language. While you’re at the folklife center and museum, peruse the gift shop filled with handmade art, soaps, potpourri and preserves.
