Share and preserve your story 


Graduate students with the University of Louisiana at Lafayette’s public history program gather 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 1, at NUNU Arts and Culture Collective for the purpose of documenting stories about the people and places of Acadiana.

Students will photograph items for inclusion in an anthropological inventory, and from which YOUR future ancestors can find the stories, see the faces and hear the voices of those who came before.

History professor Thomas Cauvin invites the public to share photographs, oral histories, stories, documents, and objects (musical, mechanical, or otherwise).

Fall Foraged Feast or F3


Hunters and Gatherers take to the woods Oct. 21-22 for lessons in the identification and the collection of ingredients that will season the pots at NUNU Arts and Culture Collective, and resulting in the great Fall Foraged Feast.

9386986c-d7c4-4dea-844e-6adf3dbc2ab51Depending on finds, a menu could be: Tortilla Española with wilted greens and oyster mushrooms, smoked wild boar and a wapato fricassee, persimmon and pecan skillet cake. And to drink: yaupon, golden rod or herbe cabri tea.

Foraging attire is rubber boots and tools for the hunt include a shovel and knife.

Main food gathering will occur on Friday, Oct. 21. The morning of Saturday, Oct. 22, will be spent more as an excursion during which you will identify and collect. That afternoon will be spent at NUNU Arts and Culture Collective preparing the dinner, which then takes place at 6 p.m.

The intent of this Foraged Feast is to build networks of people foraging in South Louisiana and support the work of the Land Memory Bank and Seed Exchange.

Watch clips of additional Arnaudville locations where French is first:

– Jackie Duplechein at Thriftyway Pharmacy Thriftyway
– Candide and Huey Wyble at Wyble’s Sno Balls Wybles
Gerald Mistrot and Megan Robin Turner at Russell’s Food Center Russell’s

Lastly, but certainly NOT least, a first-time ever area Conscious Living Expo at NUNU Arts and Culture Collective celebrates the means and methods of conscious living through the practices of healing arts, growing and eating healthy foods, and mind, body, spirit expression.

Plan on bringing a lawn chair and enjoy a family friendly day of positive experience.

Then from 3-5 p.m, Sunday, Nov. 6, join us at NUNU Arts and Culture Collective for a first time public poetry reading by multidisciplinary artist Tanner Menard.

Menard will be accompanied by musician Chad Viator.

The reading and performance, entitled “Nullity and the Luminous Whir,” combines Menard’s poetry with live ambient music by Viator. This performance bridges the artistic gulf between Menard’s former life as a composer with his new life as a poet and multidimensional, hybrid/indigenous/Metis 21st century story teller.

Experience the combined beautiful sonic backdrop of Viator’s ambient improvisations with a seamless reading of multiple poems that weave together the stories of a people, land, water, and what it means to be a person of mixed identity in the 21st century.
Public welcomed. Refreshment served.

here is a video of a new poem that combines english with the atakapa/ishak language.
