LEH Awards Strategic Partnership Grant for “Attakapas”

The LEH and Action Cadienne have agreed on a $5,000 Strategic Partnership Grant to support the live performance and television broadcast of “Attakapas,” the multimedia history of the Cajun people developed by Louisiana musician and cultural activist Zachary Richard. The performance is scheduled for Feb. 3 at the Manship Theater in Baton Rouge, and Louisiana Public Broadcasting plans to broadcast a recording in March 2017.

Action Cadienne is a volunteer organization founded by Richard in 1996 to promote the French language and the Cadien/Cajun culture of Louisiana.
