Sonya Bratlie: Through Native Eyes, a photo exhibit of the Adai-Caddo people at Karpeles Museum Shreveport, Ap 6 through Ap 30

Indigeneous to Louisiana and Texas, the Adai-Caddo Indiands ranged as far west as the plains of Texas where they hunted buffalo. Over time, they became some of the area's first cowboys, writes photographer Sonya Bratlie.

Today, the Adai-Caddo Indian Nation includes over 1200 tribal members living across the country. Karpeles Museum is presenting a month long exhibit featuring Bratlie's photographs of the Adai Caddo Indians.

"As a person of native descent, I am proud and humbled to capture our living Louisiana Heritage," wrote Bratlie.

April 6 at 1:30pm until April 30 at 3:30pm
