Day of Remembrance
 
Thursday, July 28 –
 
In Halifax, Nova Scotia on July 28, 1755 British
Governor John Lawrence signed the deportation
order setting in motion Le Grand Derangement.
“From 1755 to 1763 it is estimated by historians
that 7,000 – half of the entire ethnic population of
the Acadians – perished during their diaspora from
disease, starvation, and neglect, as well as from
violence by the British.”
Though the efforts of attorney Warren
Perrin, “In 2003, Queen Elizabeth II signed the
Royal Proclamation decreeing that every July 28th
the world should pause to remember the suffering
of the Acadians during the Acadian exile.” By
symbolically declaring an end to the Acadian
exile, the Royal Proclamation stated: ‘...we
acknowledge these historical facts and the trials
and sufferings experienced by the Acadian people
during the Great Upheaval.’”
On Thursday, July 28 let us take a
moment to remember how fortunate we are to
have survived as a people!

LOUISIANA'S FRANCOPHONE COMMUNITIES

Historically, Louisiana's Francophone communities have consisted of three primary groups: the Acadians (better known today as the Cajuns), the Creoles, and the Colonial French. The Acadians were Frenchmen who moved to and settled in the eastern most provinces of Canada, mainly in the Nova Scotia area during the early 17th century. Although the Acadians thrived in this area, they were expelled from their land by the British Government beginning in 1755. Some Acadians returned to France while others settled along the United States’ east coast and in Louisiana. Creole communities in Louisiana historically came from the State's slave population. Louisiana's slaves mainly come from the Senegambian region of Africa, and Louisiana Creole arose from their communication with their French-speaking masters. Colonial French is a variety of French that arrived with French colonists throughout the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. Colonial French has been spoken by a wide variety of groups in Louisiana, from free people of color, to plantation owners, to Native American tribes.
