The Social and Cultural Implications of Katrina and Rita

(p.2) (p.3) Storm Stories
Second Line Rescue

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter presents reflections on how folklorists can help people and institutions understand the cultural and social implications of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Folklorists must remind everyone that New Orleans was not alone in the Katrina tragedy. They must also listen to the stories, record them, and try to derive from a collection of them the story of these events in ways that may not otherwise be considered. There are many stories that need to be told and heard so that the world will know what really happened in New Orleans and in south Louisiana.

Keywords:   Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Rita, folklorist, displacement
