Janie Verret Luster

Dularge, Louisiana

United Houma Nation

“I’m a traditional Houma Indian basket weaver and traditional artist using the alligator gar fish. I still practice some of our old traditional medicines that were passed down to me by my parents and grandparents and great aunts – very proud of that.”

“Sharing our culture is one of my loves. It’s so important that our people know their history and know who they are and where they come from.”
