Description

A sugar farm outside Houma has been selected as the new home for the dozens of people remaining on Isle de Jean Charles, an island rapidly sinking into the Gulf of Mexico. An experimental program aimed at transplating the small, mostly Native American community to safer ground has zeroed in on a 515-acre farm about 40 miles north of the island in rural Terrebonne Parish.
