We are as unique as our dialect suggests, we are Cajuns. We are a very small ethnic group that is primarily concentrated in Southern Louisiana. Our ancestors were exiled from Acadie, France by way of genocide (1755-1785)Families were tragically seperated, or killed. Acaidians what are now known widely as Cajuns have a tragic and complex history you should read more about.





The word "Cajun" comes from the French pronunciation of Acadian which is "A-Cad-jin" or "Cajin" which then became "Cajun",
Cajuns are a unique,small ethnic group that have joie de vivre!
