12th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
The Feast of the Hunters' Moon scene.
Participants in the Feast come to Lafayette from across the continent to join in the classic re-enactment of a gathering of French and Indians at 18th century Ouiatenon.
It was the time of the Hunters' Moon – when hunting was good, the harvest was in and the voyageurs had returned from the North. And there was always a subject for a nice chat.
