Historian Talks Past, Future of Isleños at Plaquemines Historical Assoc. Meeting

Tulane Ph. D candidate Samantha Perez has spent years diving deep into medieval history, but she’s been immersed in the history of the Isleños all of her life. Perez - a native of Violet and Isleño descendant - grew up learning the culture and history of the Canary Islanders who settled throughout Louisiana in the 1700s, eventually helping to crafting a documentary and writing a book on the subject.
