Coushatta Culture and History

As a complement to our Coushatta language information, here is our collection of indexed links about the Coushatta tribe and their society. Please note that Coushattas and other American Indians are living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Coushatta history is interesting and important, but the Coushatta Indians are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and issues and struggles of today as well as the tragedies of yesterday. Suggestions for new links are always welcome.
