Mardi Gras, Cajun Country Style
By Sam Irwin
The Church Point “Courir de Mardi Gras,” translat-
ed literally as Mardi Gras run, is one of the two old-
est rural Mardi Gras celebrations in Louisiana. The
other is the Mamou Courir de Mardi Gras.
According to University of Louisiana at Lafayette
professor Barry Ancelet’s book, “Cajun Country,”
the courir (pronounced coo-ree) tradition harkens
back to the French Middle Ages when peasants and
perhaps a nobleman down on his luck donned masks
and ridiculous costumes lampooning any and all
authority to ritually plead for food and libation
before the somber Lenten season began.
The Cajuns of Southwest Louisiana, descendents of
those medieval Frenchmen, brought the practice to
Acadiana and have observed the season in some way,
shape or form ever since.
The 2007 Church Point version of the ancient cus-
tom translated into six mounted “capitaines” and
more than 300 costumed revelers known as the
“Mardi Gras” traveling across northeast Acadia
