Where is Yakni Chitto? We trace the indigenous Mobilian Trade Language words for "Big Country" to the area between the Mississippi and Atchafalaya rivers. In Return to Yakni Chitto: Houma Migrations, a collection of photographs and essays by Monique Michelle Verdin, we follow the story of her Houma family throughout the Gulf South. The book opens with an essay by Houma historian and philosopher Michael Dardar. Throughout the book we hear from Houma elders Anesie & Jane Verdin and their granddaughter Allison Rodriguez, as well as poems by Ray Moose Jackson and stories of collaborative art-making by ArtSpot Productions director Kathy Randels and Mondo Bizarro co-director Nick Slie.
