How we got our Cajun population

A reader pointed out that I missed acknowledging a special day Thursday - a “Day of Remembrance” for Acadians.

In Halifax, Nova Scotia, on July 28, 1755, British Gov. Charles Lawrence signed the deportation order setting in motion “Le Grand Derangement” and forcibly removing thousands of Acadians.

From 1755 to 1763, it is estimated that 7,000 - half the entire population of Acadians - perished during their diaspora.

But many made their way to Louisiana, establishing a Cajun culture that to this day enriches our state - and keeps us from being Mississippi West.

So despite the suffering his order caused, it turns out that old Charlie did us a favor....

And thank the Honorable British Gov. Charles Lawrence so much. By doing so he created one of the most interesting areas and people in the USA. South Louisiana is absolutely one of my favorite places to visit in the USA.

I am proud of my Cajun heritage.

One Definition of a Cajun: Someone who eats something before it eats them! cheers

Had crawfish just a few days ago. Gumbo is made for deer camp. We eat all week.

Have to acknowledge my polish heritage also. Will have pirogues and sausage any meals we don't have enough Gumbo.

Food is important in our family and ties us together.
