Why is it called Tchoupitoulas Street?

Tchoupitoulas Street in New Orleans is named after the Tchoupitoulas Native American tribe, which lived in the area prior to European settlement. The Tchoupitoulas were part of the Houma Nation, a group of Native American tribes that lived in present-day Louisiana. They were known for their hunting and fishing skills and were an important part of the local economy.

The Tchoupitoulas people were forcibly relocated to a reservation in the mid-19th century as the city of New Orleans expanded. The street was named for them in honor of their historical presence in the area.

Today, Tchoupitoulas Street is a bustling commercial and residential area, known for its vibrant nightlife, food, and music scene. It is also home to several historical sites, including the Tchoupitoulas Indian Village, which was a settlement of the Houma Nation.
