Louisiana Creole refers to native born people of various racial descent who are descended from the Colonial French and/or Spanish settlers of Colonial French Louisiana, before it became part of the United States in 1803 with the Louisiana Purchase with claim to the Creole culture and Creole cuisine. The commonly accepted definition today is for the community whose members are a mixture of mainly French, Spanish, African, and Native-American heritage. Some may not have each ethnic heritage, and some may have additional ancestries. Contrary to popular belief, a Creole does not exclusively pertain to a person of African and European: French or Spanish descent.

Historically, Creole was used in early generations to refer to colonists of French descent who had been born in Louisiana and were thus native to the territory, compared to new immigrants. It then meant exclusively people of European descent. It also was used for black slaves who were born in Louisiana as opposed to those born in West Africa and transported from there. French Creole became the term for those of exclusively French descent after there grew a Creole population of mixed ancestry. Many multiracial Creoles of French descent also call themselves French Creole.

People of relatively pure African-American, French or Spanish descent who have family roots in Louisiana and were raised under the Creole culture also have called themselves Creole. Today Louisiana Creole has come to mean those people of mixed ancestry.

(Louisana Creole) One of the most interesting yet little known cultures that America has ever known! We have a mixture of Black, French, Spanish, and Native American and have ancestors from Louisiana. You won't find any American food that tastes better!

The Creole is vital and essential to all Incognito partakers. Short for "The Creole Cockpitt", the Creole is the commandments of Incognito, or as I like to personally call it, "Incog." The Creole contains rules and regulations in which Incognitoers must abide by, and how they must go about their Incognito mission. Links to the Creole may include Tupac, Big L, Lil Wayne, and Hannah Montana.
The Creole Cockpitt says that all Incognitoers must proclaim "I AM INCOGNITO!" when they sign on their Incognito screen name.

The original creole was the class in S. America during the Spanish discovery of the New World. A creole during that time is of pure Spanish blood born in the New World. The class above them were the peninsulares, or Spaniards born in Spain.

The creoles started to revolt against the peninsulares because they thought it was unfair that they didn't have equal rights even though they were of the same descent, only born in a different place.
That poor creole. He would be in the top class in S. America if he was just born in Spain.

An ethnic group of Central America. Used to refer to African descendants or mixed descendants with roots from Jamaica and other non Spanish speaking Caribbean islands. Mainly mistaken for Garifunas but both ethnic groups have differences. Garifunas and Creoles are both African descendants and are both black populations of Central America but Garifunas have roots in Saint Vincent and Creoles have roots in Jamaica.
Are you Garifuna you look black no I’m a Creole
