Los Isleño Fiesta

March 2020


Welcome to the website of the Canary Islanders Heritage Society of Louisiana, a cultural, historical, and genealogical society dedicated to promoting the history and heritage of our ancestry of the Canary Islands, with emphasis on those who lived at the settlement of Galveztown and Valenzuela in south Louisiana.  Over twenty years ago, our society was formed to preserve and promote the culture of our Isleño ancestors who came to Louisiana in the late 18th century in search of a better life.  We also promote cultural exchanges between Louisiana and the Canaries.


We work closely with the organizations below.  Be sure to visit their websites.
