(p.106) Chapter Seven Traveling and the Neighborhood
"Franco-American Identity, Community, and La Guiannée"

Anna Servaes

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter explores the traveling aspect of the Guiannée through its use of modern transportation, the bus, and its ability to reach a larger, more dispersed community. Historically, several Guiannée groups performed throughout the community, redefining their boundaries through these performances. Today, one Guiannée group travels the community to redefine its community and cultural connections with other members. When the Guiannée arrives at a public place and performs, whether historical or contemporary, the place transforms into a sacred and cultural space where communal ties are renewed. The continuity in cultural spaces establishes and maintains links in the members’ memories between the past and the present.
