Zydeco Nation!


We are pleased to announce that The Zydeco Historical & Preservation Society Inc has been awarded a Louisiana Culture Care Fund Grant (LCCF) by the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities to support the general operating efforts of the Zydeco Historical & Preservation Society, Inc (ZHPS).


Funding for Louisiana Culture Care Fund grants has been administered by the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities (LEH) and provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of the American Rescue Plan (ARP) and the NEH Sustaining the Humanities through the American Rescue Plan (SHARP) initiative.


The Zydeco Historical and Preservation Society, Inc. is a grassroots, not for profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the preservation, understanding, and development of Zydeco music, history, and culture as well as rural black Creole culture of Southwest Louisiana and Texas. 


The Z.H.P.S. Inc. was established in 2000 in Opelousas, Louisiana (Zydeco Capital of the World) by citizens concerned about the loss of irreplaceable segments of Zydeco Music and Creole heritage that included structures, oral traditions, collective community memories and fabric, and the facilitation and healthy development of present day Creole culture of Southwest Louisiana and Texas.  For more information visit www.ZHPS.org.
