(Barataria Settlement)

To guard New Orleans, Spain in 1779 settled 56 families from the Canary Islands on lands starting at Crown Point. Flooding by the Mississippi River forced most of the settlers to relocate in 1782. Efforts to resettle failed and finally ceased in 1802, but scattered descendants have preserved the "Isleño" culture to the present day in nearby areas.
