Mardi Gras Krewes

By Arthur Hardy


Oshun, a figure comparable to the Roman’s Venus, was the goddess of fountains, love, wealth and religion for the African people of Brazil, Haiti and Cuba. Her symbols are the peacock and the fan. The club was founded in 1996 to provide members and their families a year-round outlet for wholesome entertainment and community service, and to present a beautiful street parade. Oshun calls its king “Shango.”
