Super Sunday 2010
I went to my first Super Sunday yesterday. No, it’s not a sporting event. It’s a day when various Mardi Gras Indian tribes meet up, show off their suits, and parade. There is drumming, chanting and call and response. The suits are incredibly elaborate, covered in feathers, beading and rhinestones and can weigh over 100 pounds. It’s a generational thing and it’s great to see the kids out in suits as well.
Here’s an overview of the Mardi Gras Indians
