Freeman & Canray Fontenot & Bois Sec Ardoin Interview

I had interviewed each of these men separately but gathering these three men together was primarily done so I could photograph them for the NTCA. After the photos were taken, they came inside for a visit and Marc asked them questions in French about their worlds. It was interesting to listen to them interacting, sharing stories.
