In 1976, the Bicentennial of the United States triggered a cultural awareness throughout the country, including Louisiana. In an attempt to preserve and promote the Hungarian culture of the Albany, Louisiana area, some of the local Magyar descendants established the Árpádhon Hungarian Settlement Cultural Association (AHSCA).
The Reconnect Hungary-Hungarian Birthright Program is a unique cultural, educational and social immersion program for young adults ages 18 to 28 of Hungarian heritage, born in the U.S. or Canada. Please click the link below for general information, photos, and videos of previous trips.
