St. Joseph's Night

Tuesday, March 19, 2024 - 7:00pm

At sunset on March 19, the Black Masking Indians of New Orleans don their elaborate suits of beads and feathers in neighborhoods throughout New Orleans and play out ritual confrontations with song and dance.

Below is video from St. Joseph's Night 2019, as multiple tribes met in the 7th Ward. Among those shown are Big Chief Kevin Goodman of the Flaming Arrows, Big Chief Dump of the Young Maasai Hunters, and members of the 7th Ward Hunters.
