Louisiana: Rite of Passage

Getting one’s first crawfish boiling pot is a rite of passage for a Louisianan. 

So reports a cultural informant, a man whom I’ll call Broussard. "Broussard" is kind of like "Smith" in American mainstream.

(In fact, all of my future Louisiana cultural informants will go by any of the surnames on this list.)
