Delphine Darden Stouff was a tribal member and medicine woman known for her snakebite cure. She was the last fluent speaker of the Chitimacha language. She was one of the participants who was recorded for hours giving language information (legends and stories) to people sent here to study and preserve the language in the 1930s. These important recordings are the basis for the Chitimacha language revitalization program today. Delphine was also a basket weaver.
