The hardy pioneers who settled in this area combined elements of Native American, Anglo, Spanish, French, and African cultures and created rugged individuals who developed a strong sense of independence and self-reliance as they made a life for themselves and their families in Louisiana's final frontier. Like our stories of outlaws or buried treasure, our other traditions—legends of circuit riders, running deer with dogs in the woods, and so on—express not only the knowledge that our people found a way to inhabit and thrive in a region known to be sparsely populated, set apart, and perhaps even a little dangerous, but also their pride in having done so.

Come take part in events, specials, and other happenings in the eight parishes that will celebrate the pride of 200 years of No Man's Land along Louisiana's western border.
