This week team Rougarou are in Louisiana on a fundraising/research trip. Photos to follow!
We're pleased to welcome you to our AFI thesis film, LE ROUGAROU.
The Rougarou is a mythical cajun beast, that stalks the bayous of Louisiana and punishes Catholics who don't keep their vows during Lent. The etymology of Rougarou comes originally from the French, "Loup Garou" a werewolf created by people breaking their Lent vow 7 years in a row. Today, the Rougarou combines tales of the werewolf and boogeyman with Native American (Houma) beliefs.
The Rougarou is scary and believed in by children and adults alike.
