The Atchafalaya Basin
For many generations the Cajuns of the Atchafalaya Basin have depended on this wild and primitive land for their survival in every sense of the word. Before the Cajuns it was the legendary home of the Chitimachas Indians who settled this diverse overflow region of the Atchafalaya River. Living in harmony with the land that we consider the big woods, they consumed what they needed and left the balance at peace with itself. This vast piece of woodlands that covers more than 800,000 acres from Simmesport, LA to Morgan City, LA, is one of the most complex man controlled flood systems in the world and is responsible for draining flood water from as many as 38 of the contiguous United States.
