Edutainment

 

At Creole West Productions, our edutainment projects are delivered in a variety of formats 

Internet ♦ Events ♦ Publications ♦ Multimedia 

The soul of our edutainment is rigorous research - compilation, examination and documentation.The research relies heavily on official and original records, specifically international, national, state, and local archives—both public and private. Further, meticulous study and use of secondary published and unpublished sources supplement use of the original records. Records are translated from French, Spanish and Louisiana Creole to English. Secondary published and unpublished sources supplement the findings. The intimate experience of the history is enhanced by compilation and documentation of oral histories. From this varied examination, the historical experience is naturally unveiled.

The recorded history weaves in and out of colonial France and Spain, threading into the fabric of two hundred years as a democracy with the United States. The intrigue lies within the steadfastness of its unique cultures, reflecting a facet of the diverse heritage in America today.
