One of the goals of the Grand Bayou Sunset project is to help raise awareness of the peril that faces the Grand Bayou Indians Village in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. Their way of life has depended on the local wetlands for centuries, which have now been devastated by oil spills and impacted by levees.

To take action and support this cause, please visit the Lowlander Center site.

“There are no projects to rebuild their wetlands — a habitat in lower Plaquemines Parish essential to their livelihoods and culture — even though they were destroyed by state-sanctioned activities.”
