What a great idea to preserve and pass on the Cajun French Language:  there will be a free French Tent at the Swamp Stomp, March 18-20, 2011 at Nicholls State University.  As the web site says:  “The purpose of the Bayou French Tent is to promote the bounties of bayou life and the Louisiana “French” language that is still spoken today in South Louisiana.  The Bayou French Tent is separate from the Swamp Stomp Festival and is free to the public.”  There will be activities Friday, March 18 from 4pm until 8pm, Saturday 11am to 6pm, and Sunday 11am to 7pm.  Activities last an hour and include dance lessons, paper pulp painting, decoy carving, and many others.  Préservez votre culture et langue!
