Mardi Gras Indians 2007 from Alexia Prichard on Vimeo.

“The Mardi Gras Indians go back to the beginning… to slavery…” says Golden Eagles Big Chief, Monk Boudreaux. In this video we visit with Monk and with David Montana, Second Chief of the Yellow Pocahontas as they put the finishing touches on the elaborate 100+ pound costumes they will wear all day as they march, dance and sing on Mardi Gras, continuing a tradition that has survived for over on hundred years.
