On August 29th, 2005, a catastrophic hurricane named Katrina made landfall on the Gulf coast of the United States. When the skies finally cleared, the survival of New Orleans hung in the balance.

During its 25 year history over 10,000 people called the colony "home." Most amazing is that the colony thrived, not in California, where it began in 1914, but in conservative Louisiana."
