Šta ćete raditi

A short walk through Congo Square culminating in a talk at my studio in the Treme neighborhood about Hoodoo, Voodoo, Black Carnival Traditions, the deeds and misdeeds of my own Louisiana Creole ancestors and other lesser known aspects of New Orleans history and culture. In my studio rum bar you will enjoy a shot of rum and a chance to check out my art and black masking Indian attire. My house has long been a place where friends come to ground themselves in the cultural vibration of the city. I am so excited to now share this experience with you!

GREAT FOR GROUPS AS WELL AS INDIVIDUAL TRAVELERS!!

Other things to note:

THIS IS NOT A TOUR. It’s not focused on site seeing but rather an EXPERIENCE that uses a few sites as a backdrop, so if you are looking for a site seeing tour this will not meet your expectations.
With that said, while the majority of my presentation will be at my studio, we will also walk the equivalent of six blocks through the park and stand in one place for long periods. Please wear comfortable shoes and stay hydrated because the heat can be oppressive, especially in the summer. BTW - NO PHOTOS of my studio or myself are allowed, thank U.

I'm an artist and 12th-generation Afro-Creole. My family fled Louisiana in 1970 to escape racial oppression. I returned 17 years ago to reconnect with the land of my ancestors. I make art with wood salvaged from my Katrina-damaged home in Treme, and mask as a Medicine Man in the Black Masking Indian tradition. My art is in the permanent collection of the American Folk Art Museum and in the homes of art-lovers worldwide.

Gde ćete biti

The experience takes place roughly an hour in the park and an hour at my studio, which is seldom open to the public. After Hurricane Katrina, I converted former slave quarters into an art studio, Hoodoo shop, and guest rooms.

This is a must do if you hope to gain an in depth understanding of the history of NOLA, voodoo and hoodoo, and racism/slavery in colonial and present day America. This is a highly educational experience from an incredibly passionate and genuine host. Our favorite experience in NOLA by far.

This was an amazing experience; one of the biggest highlights of our trip. I can’t recommend enough for those who want a deeper and more nuanced understanding of New Orleans and its history, through the lens of family and spirituality.

Amazing! Incredible history lesson and authentic story telling; loved every minute of it! This is a must do experience to get the real facts and stories behind Voodoo and the color laws in NOLA. Learned so much and wished it could have gone on longer - had to run. I’m so grateful to hear first hand experiences about African-American history in the New Orleans.

If you want to party in New Orleans, you should take the time to learn its true history. I learned a lot and I think the whole group would have gladly stayed for hours and hours listening to Jean-Marcel. Excellent storytelling. And his art is incredible! Do yourself a favor and sign up for this experience.

A very authentic perspective of New Orleans from someone with deep roots, fully immersed and educated in its history. It rounded out my experience and understanding of New Orleans as a first time visitor. I’d recommend for someone looking do the same.

This was the best part of our trip. We were looking for authentic history and culture and it was surprisingly not easy to find in all of the little museums and tours, and Jean-Marcel more than made up for it. I want to do this experience every time I come to NoLa; I feel like I was only able to absorb a fraction of what he said. He was captivating and engaging and truthful. I’d recommend this experience to anyone and everyone.
