October is Archaeology Month!

Every year, Louisiana Archaeology Month's statewide programs and events encourage residents and visitors to learn more about the archaeology and history of the state and to protect, preserve, and enjoy these important resources of our rich cultural heritage.

The 2022 Archaeology Month poster highlights a collection from the Uma' damáha' tcetu' (Grand Houmas Village) located in current-day Ascension Parish.  This recorded archaeological site dates to the 1700s and is one of several known historic settlements of the United Houma Nation of Louisiana.  Special thanks to the United Houma Nation and the Houma Language Project for their collaboration.

The two sizes above you may use to view in more detail and to print.  If you prefer the 18x24 in printed poster, reach out to us at archaeology@crt.la.gov and we will send you a copy. The poster is for personal and educational use only.
