My family are descendeds of French speaking immigrants from Acadia Canada area. So the name Acadians was placed on the people around 1877. Yes we were thrown out of home land so others could take over and make their Fortune in gold and money . The families that made it down here to Louisiana and set up their Families and loved our swampland, bayous and marsh.
In in order to have our last names spelled the same Judge Paul Briant of St. Martin parish put the X on the end of our last names. It has been rumored it was also done to track the Cajuns. (Acadian.org)
My maiden name is Robicheaux.
Cajuns have a strong love of family, friends, food and culture. To me Sha having people over for a good meal be it boiled crawfish, crabs, or gumbo it’s a good time.Yes do love to dance in the streets.
