Louisianais
Louisiana (i/luːˌiːziˈænə/ or i/ˌluːziˈænə/; French: État de Louisiane, [lwizjan] ( ); Louisiana Creole: Léta de la Lwizyàn) is a state located in the southern region of the United States. Louisiana is the 31st most extensive and the 25th most populous of the 50 United States. Its capital is Baton Rouge and largest city is New Orleans. Louisiana is the only state in the U.S. with political subdivisions termed parishes, which are local governments equivalent to counties. The largest parish by population is East Baton Rouge Parish, and the largest by land area is Cameron Parish. The two "Deltas" are located in Monroe, the parish seat of Ouachita Parish, Shreveport, the parish seat of Caddo Parish, and Alexandria, the parish seat of Rapides Parish, for the small Delta, and Monroe, Lake Charles, and New Orleans for the large Delta. They are referred to as Deltas because they form a perfect triangle shape when the points are lined up.
Much of the state's lands were formed from sediment washed down the Mississippi River, leaving enormous deltas and vast areas of coastal marsh and swamp. These contain a rich southern biota; typical examples include birds such as ibis and egrets. There are also many species of tree frogs, and fish such as sturgeon and paddlefish. In more elevated areas, fire is a natural process in the landscape, and has produced extensive areas of longleaf pine forest and wet savannas. These support an exceptionally large number of plant species, including many species of orchids and carnivorous plants.
Some Louisiana urban environments have a multicultural, multilingual heritage, being so strongly influenced by a mixture of 18th-century French, Spanish, Native American, and African cultures that they are considered to be somewhat exceptional in the US. Before the American purchase of the territory, the current Louisiana State had been both a Spanish and French colony. In addition, the pattern of development included importing numerous African slaves in the 18th century with many from the same region of West Africa, thus concentrating their culture. In the post-Civil War environment, Anglo-Americans increased the pressure for Anglicization, and in 1915, English was made the only official language of the state. It has more Native American tribes than any other southern state, including four that are federally recognized, ten that are state recognized, and four that have not yet received recognition.

Louisiana is walling off schoolchildren from each other: Robert Mann | NOLA.com
"Something there is that doesn't love a wall, that wants it down," Robert Frost wrote in his poem "Mending Wall." Indeed, we humans struggle against our urge to erect walls, even as we retreat behind them. The earliest colonizers - in places like Jamestown and Roanoke - barricaded inside forts, fearfully emulating their English ancestors who had done the same for centuries. Later generations of Americans would, instead, build vibrant communities, which prized responsibility, accountability and social capital. But the urge to huddle behind walls - primal, but suppressed - never vanished. In the early 20th century, new enclaves spouted - New York's Tuxedo Park and the private streets of St. Louis. Today, of course, gated communities are all the rage. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates almost 11 million households live behind walls, up from 7 million in 2001. The reasons are many and perhaps better left to the sociologists. But it seems clear that fear of crime, the "wrong" neighbors and a nostalgic desire to recreate our own private Mayberrys are partly at play. If we were merely sleeping in gated communities, the estrangement and damage to community would be bad enough. But fortress mentality has now reached...
