A timeless city with a unique way of life, New Orleans is a city where cultures collide in a brilliant explosion of flavors, emotions, and sounds. New Orleans is the birthplace of jazz, home to Creole cuisine and rich with history and culture. The picturesque Big Easy calls curious minds to sweet sounds of jazz and the enchanting aroma of savory spices. New Orleans is an enticing, culturally rich haven…a sensory overload…an authentic experience.



We acknowledge the land on which we sit and occupy today as the traditional and ancestral home of the United Houma Nation. We also acknowledge the Chitimacha, the Biloxi, the Choctaws of Louisiana, Tunica/Biloxi Tribes in Louisiana, and other Indigenous nations of the Mississippi River.

We take this opportunity to thank and honor the original caretakers of this land. May our time here lead to actions that uproot systems of oppression, and may we come into relationship with place, and place-based peoples.
