Welcome to Louisiana Voices! Do you have a nickname? How do you celebrate your favorite holiday? Name something that you have learned outside school. How did you learn to play Tic Tac Toe? Tell a story about yourself when you were little.
Just like adults, young people are active makers and users of all kinds of folklife traditions. Everyone has folklife! Louisiana Voices shows you how to learn more about your own folklife and the many kinds of folklife that people in your family, your community, and your state practice. You will discover that you are already an expert in several traditions, and you will find lots of storytellers, musicians, and craftspeople all around you and all around Louisiana.
