Chitimacha Museum

The Chitmacha have called south Louisiana home for about 2500 years.  The Chitimacha Museum has exhibits that document the Chitimacha tribe lifestyles, customs, and ceremonies from their earliest aboriginal land holdings and settlement to their current achievements as a self-governing tribe.  The Chitimacha are known as some of the finest basket makers in North America and examples of their basketry can be found in the museum as well as other Indian artifacts.
