64 Parishes magazine, the Natchitoches Convention & Visitors Bureau, and the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame have teamed up to toast the latest issue of 64 Parishes and celebrate this year’s Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities Lifetime Contribution to the Humanities Honoree, Dr. Hiram F. “Pete” Gregory. An archaeologist and longtime faculty member at Northwestern State University (NSU), Gregory serves as academic advisor to the Louisiana Creole Heritage Center and curator for NSU’s Williamson Museum. 64 Parishes’ fall issue, focused on Louisiana foodways, also highlights the work of folklorist and filé maker John Oswald Colson and anthropologist Dustin Fuqua to ensure the sustainability of sassafras and the file-making tradition.

Join us Wednesday, September 18, at the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame for an evening of refreshments, mingling, speechifying, and giveaways.

Complimentary bites and beer will be on offer from students in NSU’s Hospitality Management and Tourism program and Cane River Brewing Company. This event is free and open to the public.
