  • Today’s Black History Month fact of the day, brought to you by the St. Peter Claver Club: Mardi Gras Indian tribes can often be spotted roaming the streets of New Orleans, particularly on Mardi Gras day and St. Joseph’s day. The tribes evolved as a way for black New Orleanians to celebrate the carnival season, from which they were excluded at the time. Mardi Gras Indian tribes, complete with Chiefs, wild men, spy boys, and flag boys, along with their unique means of communicating with one another are directly referenced in popular New Orleans music. Songs like Iko, Iko by the Dixie Cups, Hey Pocky Way by the Meters, and Big Chief by Professor Longhair are among the many that pay homage to Mardi Gras Indians.
