SWAMP PEO­PLE:

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - MEDIA& MARKETING -

Se­ries 4. Deep in the heart of Louisiana lies the US’s largest swamp. A mil­lion miles of in­hos­pitable bay­ous, marshes and wet­lands where na­ture rules and hu­mans strug­gle to tame it. Many of its in­hab­i­tants are the hard­ened descen­dants of French refugees who were forced out of Canada in the 18th cen­tury and set­tled in this harsh yet ma­jes­tic en­vi­ron­ment. To­day, th­ese peo­ple are known as the Ca­juns, a group known for their flavour­ful cui­sine, dis­tinc­tive mu­sic and vi­brant cul­ture.

Se­ries 4 of Swamp Peo­ple fol­lows the re­silient, self-re­liant and fiercely in­de­pen­dent Ca­juns of the Atchafalaya Swamp, who still carry on many of their an­ces­tors’ trades and tra­di­tions.

In to­day’s episode, Troy’s sons try to help him win the bet against the hunters from Texas. Mean­while, af­ter they run out of bul­lets, hunters use a tiny pocket knife to stop a ga­tor be­fore it at­tacks the boat.
