12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
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.
