Every year, Mardi Gras Indians sew their own suit by hand, and every year, they incorporate something that matters to them on a spiritual level.
This could be a civil rights legend to help to bring awareness to the plight of the ongoing struggle of being Black in America, like MLK.
Or, someone who represents them on a personal and spiritual level, like Haile Selassie.
Or it could be a dedication to the most important person in all our lives, someone who nurtured us to become the person we are, the person who was always there to cheer for us when we're right and scold us when we're wrong.
They're not gonna see that.
- They're not gonna see that.
Fatman, come here.
Tyrell, come here.
I've gotta talk to y'all.
Both of y'all come here.
Fatman come here.
I'm proud of you, Fatman.
Yeah, I know.
I'm extremely proud of y'all, all right.
Fatman, you coming out as the first spy, the first time.
You got this, ok?
Just like you practice.
You got it.
What are you?
Fatman - Spyboy Big Chief T - What spyboy?
Pretty spot boy.
Tyrell... you do your job.
I love y'all.
I love both of y'all, all right?
For "Indian Red" Fatman, when I call you out, when you're almost done, you go to Mommy, give her a hug and tell how much you're thankful.
OK... that you're thankful for her.
But remember, when we do "Indian Red" you go to momma and tell her how much you love her.
Your suit is for her.
All right, Your suit is dedicated her... All right.
Yeah, me of course.
