K10: La Renaissance de la Nouvelle-Orléans


An Op-Ed by Alexandre Vialou of nolafrancaise.com

Ten years ago, Hurricane Katrina and the failure of the federal levees destroyed lives and the physical infrastructure of the City of New Orleans. With it, the indigenous connection that had existed between New Orleanians and their French cultural heritage for 297 years was -yet again- put to test. Iconic Cajun and Creole restaurants had to close, local french-singing musicians were scattered all around the nation. Uncertainty even surrounded the fate of Carnival in 2006.

Waiters races are a Parisian tradition that have spread world wide.

France’s diplomatic mission to NOLA set up a digital condolence book and the Consul General Grégor Trumel issued a statement expressing hope and gratitude.
