Isle De Jean Charles, LA

I fished BCKFC’s PAC Attack this past Saturday (report coming soon), which was held at Isle de Jean Charles Marina, aka, Theo’s. Isle de Jean Charles is a small strip of road and camps in Pointe Aux Chenes, south of Houma. There are 24 families living on the island of French Native American heritage. Choctaw, Biloxi, & Chitimacha are the tribes represented.

Like many places in South Louisiana, if you just drive through these small coastal communities, you don’t really think anything of it. However, this is paradise to the people who live there. They choose to stay & come back after every hurricane and rebuild their lives. But paradise is sinking.

I found these short films on Isle de Jean Charles and it’s residents, and found them interesting.
