Yellow Pocahontas visit St. Francis Xavier School

Several Mardi Gras Indians of the Yellow Pocahontas tribe visited the school. In addition to showing off their spectacular costumes, they danced and sang for the audience. The Indians were invited by parent Mr. Todd Higgins. They included (in order of photo) Mr. Tyrone Yancey, Mr. Belden Batiste, Mr. Keenan Batiste, and Mr. Brandon Batiste.
Spokesperson Mr. Yancey told the students that the Yellow Pocahontas tribe is the second oldest traditional tribe and will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2018.
He also told the students that their group is in its 5th generation of family members, and that he, himself, has been making his costume for 42 years, beginning when he was eight.
Following their visit, Mr. Yancey allowed students to try on the top of his costume, which swallowed them, so they could have an idea of the weight.

Author Reads "Little Float" to Kindergarten and 1st Graders!

Yvonne Perret visited St. Francis Xavier's Library and read her Mardi Gras story, "The Little Float That Could." The students were mesmerized by her story and illustrations. Yvonne later commented, "These were some of the best questions!" We thank her and hope to see her next Carnival season!
