Fictional Chickasaw Indian Chief Slacabamorinico, portrayed by Wayne Dean, is driven down Bienville Boulevard during Dauphin Island’s first People’s Parade during Mardi Gras, Feb. 4, 2017, in Dauphin Island, Alabama. The Chief Slac character was created by the late Joe Cain, who revived Mardi Gras in Mobile in 1867 after it was temporarily halted by the Civil War. Dean has portrayed the character since 1985. French settlers held the first Mardi Gras in 1703, making Mobile's celebration the oldest Mardi Gras in the United States. The first parade of the season is traditionally held on Dauphin Island and draws thousands. (Photo by Carmen K. Sisson/Cloudybright)
