Creole or Cajun

Submitted by admin

The Creoles of South Louisiana are generally considered the white descendents of the French and Spanish settlers of the colonial period who lived mostly in New Orleans and along the Mississippi. The Cajuns - Acadians of Louisiana, are descendents of the six thousand  French who were expelled by the English from the province of Acadie in Nova Scotia in 1755, many settled in the bayou country of southwestern Louisiana around 1765.
