Clayton moves readers to think about notions of time and space and the intricacies of Louisiana Creole peoples. Mother of chaos: queen of the nines seamlessly transcends between spaces that create a long-storied history that has often been misunderstood: a story of post-contact Afro-Indigeneity: Louisiana Creoles.
