Chitimacha Night Out
Chitimacha Tribal Police held its sixth annual National Night Out recently at the Chitimacha Tribal School. “P’Maw” from A&E’s series “Swamp’d” was the special guest for the event. At top are “P’Maw”, front center, and from back left Earl Tyler of the Chitimacha Fire Department, Tribal Chairman John P. Darden, Chitimacha Fire Chief Billy Mora and Chitimacha Police Chief Blaise Smith. Below, another special guest was a 14-foot, 130-pound boa constrictor who drew a lot of attention. This year’s program was held in honor of Sgt. Frederick “Rick” Riggenbach, a tribal police officer who was killed in the line of duty in January.
