Home of crawfish boils, charming accents, the birth of jazz music, and the dazzling dreamland of New Orleans, Louisiana is an absolute treasure chest of American culture from the northern prairies all the way down to the Gulf of Mexico. Like all of its neighboring states, Louisiana was once a French colony, although its original inhabitants were Native Americans of the earliest recorded tribes. The entire area was home to “Poverty Point Culture,” before the 17th century Europeans entered the mix. The state is named for King Louis XIV, ruler of France at the time of Louisiana’s colonization.

The Pelican State is one of the country’s most culturally diverse states, boasting an array of cultures from all over the world. Most prominent among these are the Creole and Cajun cultures, originating from immigrants who traveled to the New World from France, Spain, and the Canary Islands. These migrants settled on the banks of the Mississippi River, in the bayou, or in metropolises like New Orleans and Baton Rouge. They brought with them their colorful backgrounds, music styles, and spicy, delicious cuisines, which continue to captivate the rest of America.

Thanks to its characteristic diversity, the state has developed a reputation of warmth and welcome for those of all backgrounds. All are welcome from South Americans to Africans and from ballerinas to urologists in Louisiana. For a comprehensive list of the latter, visit Urologists.com today!
