This thesis is a public history project that contains a traditional paper, as well as an accompanying documentary. Both parts of this project examine the life and work of Louise Olivier, a cultural activist during the twentieth century, and examine how her activism continues to impact Louisiana through her preservation work and impact on others. In examining Olivier’s work, through the traditional paper or documentary, one can see how her work influenced and helped create the next generation of cultural activists while also sparking the interest in traditional Louisiana Acadian customs and traditions.
