Monique Verdin is a citizen of the United Houma Nation in the St. Bernard Parish community of southern Louisiana. As a town previously devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and facing ongoing climate threats, community members are organizing around a vision for their shared future. In this short documentary directed by Katie Mathews, Verdin describes community-led efforts to educate, inspire, and envision through art, preservation of Indigenous knowledge, and creative community spaces for multigenerational engagement. She refers to one of her recent projects as a “Land Memory Bank” to share seeds, stories, and wisdom in a community archive. Despite the immense challenges facing their community, Verdin believes the answers will be found through working together. Photo credit: Screenshot from video
