Old Souls and New Rhythms

New Orleans represents a combination of the cultural influences of food, music, celebration and mourning in our dynamic and ever-changing genres. New Orleans is full of histories and stories, some from the city and some from the country, some from our visitors from foreign shores and some from the heartland. Our city's culture is ancient, with tendrils from the Chitimacha tribe to settlers, to modern visitors, who often pause here in their travels down the mighty Mississippi on their way to the rest of the world, and leave their fingerprint on the culture of the city. Let's hear them all and let's not forget, lest we consign ourselves to repeating past mistakes. Welcome to New Orleans, where magic still happens as it has for decades.

The land currently known as New Orleans is physically situated in the region known as “Bulbancha,” a Choctaw term meaning “place of many tongues.” This place was originally inhabited by the Chitimacha nation and, prior to 1718, served as an important port and trading hub for more than 40 diverse peoples, including Atakapa, Caddo, Choctaw, Houma, Natchez, and Tunica nations. We pay respect to these communities and look forward to gathering in Bulbancha for the World Fantasy Convention 2022.
