Young Messiah Hunters step out

Published on: March 3rd, 2019

2018 was the first Mardi Gras for the Young Messiah Hunters, led by Big Chief Dump (Keelian Boyd Sr.).

The black masking Indians of New Orleans, commonly known as Mardi Gras Indians, comprise a diverse group that is always evolving. Some participants are born into it, while others join when young and sometimes as adults.

This video shows the Young Messiah Hunters as they prepare to come out for the first time on Mardi Gras morning.
