Mohawk Hunters
Algiers, La. Mardi Gras Indians

I first met the Indians at the Algiers River Festival in April 2009. I was so impressed with their effort and artistic creativity
I decided to take on the challenge of recreating their work in paintings. After I did the first 3 paintings I forwarded pictures of them to
Chief Casby.  The Chief then invited me to display them at a lecture he was giving about the tribe. The Mardi Gras Indians
started in 1946. Chief Casby started masking when he was 16. In 1980 he became the Big Chief of the Mohawk Hunters.
The tribe consists of 18 to 32 members. There are different positions in the tribe, each serves a different purpose. It takes
a year to make each costume. Every year they create a new one. There are 18 different tribes in New Orleans. The tribe
does historical presentations regarding the Mardi Gras Indians. They also perform at weddings, parties ect. For more information
contact Big Chief Tyrone Casby at 504-239-3685 or email him  tcasbysr@bellsouth.net

* Postcards are now available of all of the Indian paintings. They measure 5 I/2 in x 8 1/2 in
and will sell for $4 each or $50 for a complete set of 15.
