Mardi Gras Indian Tribes From New Orleans

Listed are more than 50 Mardi Gras Indian tribe names from in and around the New Orleans area. The oldest is Creole Wild West, founded in the 1800s. Some, like the Wild Squatoulas and Medallion Hunters, are no longer active. Others, such as Fi-Yi-Yi and Congo Nation, haven't yet reached their peak. If you're in the Crescent City during the Jazz & Heritage Festival this weekend, join the second line of their spectacular walk-around parades.
