Le sud-ouest de la Louisiane est l’endroit qui regroupe la plus forte concentration de descendants acadiens en dehors des provinces maritimes du Canada. Ce livre retrace l’histoire de ce peuple formé par des pionniers venus de la France au début du 17e siècle. Il raconte l’expérience coloniale, les épreuves de la Déportation et l’exil. Il décrit l’arrivée des premiers Acadiens en Louisiane et l’évolution de leur société le long des bayous. Enfin, il fournit un portrait de la culture cadienne de la Louisiane en présentant certaines de ses traditions populaires et le développement de ses institutions artistiques contemporaines.

Inspired by an earlier volume published in New Brunswick dealing with the history of the Acadian community there, this work shares the same history as the Acadians of the Canadian maritimes up to the Deportation of 1755. At that point, Histoire des Acadiennes et Acadians de la Louisisane follows the route of exile that brought the Acadians to Louisiana. It studies the evolution of the Acadian community in Louisiana and furnishes a portrait of contemporary Acadian/Cajun culture through its social traditions and artistic expression. Although intended for French immersion students in Louisiana studies (8th grade), this book is a comprehensive overview of Acadian/Cajun history and culture. Rich in archival images and captivating photography, the book is a beginner’s guide to the Acadian/Cajun experience of Louisiana.
