Based at the Louisiana State University, the Archives of Cajun and Creole Folklore was started in 1974, and it remains the most comprehensive repository of recorded and transcribed materials in French in Louisiana. This digital collection from the Louisiana Digital Library project allows visitors to listen and learn about various ballads, folktales, and jokes in French, Creole, and English. Some of the most interesting items here are the copies of old 78RPM recordings by Pee Wee Broussard, Boogie Nathan Abshire, and Amedee Breaux. Visitors can create a list of their own favorites for future consideration, search all of the items, and also use the Help feature to get acquainted with the entire collection. Finally, the site includes links to the other Louisiana Digital Library projects.
