Slang term for a New Orleans native. The term is specifically used to describe residents of Orleans, Jefferson, and St. Bernard parishes, and is exclusive to the area. For natives, the term is most generally used to identify members of the Westbank region of New Orleans including residents of: Algiers, Terrytown, Gretna, Harvey, Marrero, Westwego, Avondale, Lafitte, and Belle Chasse.

A Y'at can be identified by dialect, mannerisms, lifestyle, and/or appearance.

The term Y'at is derived from "Where y'at?", a common greeting in the New Orleans area.

Y'at can also appear as "y@" in new media and certain publications.
His thick Westbank accent and affinity for New Orleans culture led me to believe that he was a Y'at.
