For 200 years there has been a tradition in New Orleans. Every year on the day before Mardis Gras, The Northside Skull and Bone Gang walk the streets in the 6th District of the city dressed as oversized skeletons and making a general racket in order to warn the youth of the dangers of violence and gun play. This short documentary by Victoria Rivera is narrated by Bruce ‘Sunpie’ Barnes , a musician by trade but the current leader of the Skull and Bone Gang. Barnes talks about the reasons they march every year, as well as the rich history and tradition that is attached to this long-held practice and what it means to the local of New Orleans.
