New Orleans Black Indians Alliance & Friends of NOBIA Invite you to their Soiree of Feathers Inaugural

A testament to their cultural heritage, Black Masking Indians are paying their respects to the indigenous people who helped enslaved Africans escape the tyranny of slavery; the tribes who at the forefront of civil disobedience have collectively masked and paraded through the streets of New Orleans since the 19th century; and their ancestors, Big Chief Donald Harrison Sr., Guardian of the Flames; Big Chief Allison “Tootie” Montana, Yellow Pocahontas; Big Chief Robert “Robbe” Nathaniel Lee, White Eagles; Big Queen Barbara Sparks, Yellow Jackets; Big Chief Lawrence Fletcher, White Eagles; Big Chief Larry Bannock, Golden Star Hunters; and Big Chief Harold Feddison, White Cloud Hunters, to name a few.

As an Alliance, we are working together with Indian tribes throughout the city of New Orleans and surrounding areas to relieve some of the suffering that is experienced in our communities on a daily basis.

Our Alliance is not a governing body or focused on given a tribute to any specific chief.
The Alliance is bringing Indian tribes together to build a tradition of high quality program services and activism related to economic security, community engagement, and cultural heritage and ritual conservation.

NOBIA is partnering with organizations like Children’s Hospital of New Orleans and Feed the Children in support of our communities.

In culmination of all our efforts, NOBIA is currently working on an historical event in New Orleans.

This is the first ever Black Masking Indians Charity Ball, (a black tie affair), commonly referred to as “Mardi Gras” Indians.
