It's Mardi Gras Time..Let the good times roll...

There is no state in the Union, hardly any spot of like size on the globe, where the man of color has lived so intensely, made so much progress, been of such historical importance and yet about whom so comparatively little is known.

His history is like the Mardi Gras of the city of New Orleans, beautiful and mysterious and wonderful, but with a serious thought underlying it all. May it be better known to the world someday.

St Augustine Catholic Church ......New Orleans La

The Church is in danger of closing Due to a drop in membership and very little, if any, in funding ..They are in desperate need of money to keep their doors open.

St Augustine is the Oldest active Catholic Church in America built By Afro / Creoles, The home Church of Henriette Delille, The First Creole American of Color nominated for Saithhood in America and many, many more honors of distinction..

We all Say We are proud Creoles but now is the time for all to get off their " Butts " and support their Culture .. If You cannot afford to Donate or volunteer contact or pass the word on to Your favorite Business establishment or Funding agency so that This Church can stay open..Now is the time to show Your True Face and do something for Your Creole Heritage and Culture.

Help keep Your Culture alive for generations to come ...Please Do Your part and The Lord Will bless Your Kindness and consideration If it's anything that is needed is for You to support " Your Own Community ".....It would Be a Good gift to Your Lord..God Bless You..

Augustine / Comeaux

Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and
only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let
other people spend it for you.

Creole by Definition

A...........Historically, the term Creole was documented by Inca Garcilaso de la Vega. In "The Inca", writing in the early 1600s, he said: "The name was invented by the Negroes... They use it to mean a Negro born in the Indies, and they devised it to distinguish those who come from this side and were born in Guinea from those born in the New World....

B...........Another version states that the term Creole (Spanish -- Criollo) was introduced in 1590. It derived from the Latin word “crear”, which meant, “create.” In 1590, Father J. de Acosta decided that the mixed breeds born in the New World were neither Spanish, African, Indian, but various mixtures of all three, thus a created race. So he identified them as "Criollos".

The Spanish copied them by introducing this word to describe those born in the New World, and in this way both Spaniards and Guinea Negroes are called criollo if they were born in the New World."

After Years of Struggling for the true meaning Wikipepia has Re-defined the Word after being presented with documentation

What Does Creole mean to Us ??

 

More than once in ongoing discussion regarding the meaning of the word “Creole,” it has been remarked by some pithy yet insightful party that “anyone who is compelled to ask what a Creole is, is most definitely not one himself.”

Outside observers tended to identify as Creoles only those very fair-complexioned colored people of Louisiana and the Gulf Coast whose manners, customs, and heritages were overwhelmingly Gallic.

This definition tends to limit the definition of Creoles to mulattoes or mixed-race people which is an egregious error, which accounts for mulatto or mixed-race people in a variety of cities and regions being labeled as Creole, when in fact they are not.

This definition completely eliminates the presence of white persons who identified and were identified as Creoles.A. E. Perkins, as quoted above, correctly culls the fact that Creole is an identifier which traditionally transcended the pitiable racial caste system. Creole was a cultural identifier and an attestation of heritage.
