About Us

 

Our Story

Since its incorporation in 1976, Los Isleños Heritage and Cultural Society of St. Bernard has evolved into an impressive and successful organization as a reflection of the community it represents.

Today the Society provides for the development of Los Isleños Museum and Historic Village. This Museum Complex is composed nine separate buildings with supporting infrastructure. Guided tours are offered to create an immersive experience into the culture and history of the Isleño community.

Annually, la Fiesta de los Isleños (Los Isleños Fiesta) is held on the property as a means to promote Louisiana’s Spanish heritage. Likewise, the Society supports the local public schools through Museum Days as well as a Canary Islander Descendants Scholarship.
