The Courir is a door to door horse back parade, a trail ride of sorts. The Courir riders stop at each house and performs by playing music and danceing in exchange for ingredients for a huge Gumbo at the end of the day. The chief ingredient being the Chicken on the hoof which the drunken riders have to catch.
It's a lot of fun. These rides take place in the small towns located on the Cajun prairie between Lake Charles and Lafayette, Louisiana.
The best Mardi Gras Courir takes place in the town of Mamou.
God and the soldier we like adore,
In times of trouble, not before.
When troubles ended and all things righted,
God is forgotten and the soldier is slighted.

When asked for my race, I answer CauCajun.
Hope is not a plan, and not all change is good. The resistance is here; the resistance is now. RESIST!
These hands are neither cold nor are they dead!!
