This article deals primarily with how the daughters of Tabasco founder Edward McIlhenny worked to find markets for the baskets of Chitimacha Indians. But it also notes that descendants of the Avery Family like Mary Bradford, her older sister Sara McIlhenny, their brother Edward Avery McIlhenny, and their maternal aunt Margaret Avery Johnston, were all interested in Louisiana folklore and often published stories about Acadians, Indians, and African Americans in the region (pp. 345–346). Usner highlights the “incongruous purposes and imperious perceptions” (347) that often drove this work by the McIlhenny/Avery clan.
