“Some of my favorite traditions are cooking my grandma’s file gumbo recipe that has been passed on in the family. And I recently have been trying to learn Cajun French. I remember growing up and knowing when the adults were talking about something really interesting because they would start talking in Cajun French”
“Makes things a little more interesting. Especially with my background and how far I’ve come. Like as a little girl, and being part of the program and stuff. It’s a cool thing because there’s not a whole lot of tribes so it gives you that uniqueness.”
“Definitely the friendliest culture. Everybody helps everybody, that’s what I like about down south. Everybody knows everybody.”
