    Default All things Cajun

    I've noticed there's not many threads dedicated to Cajun-American culture, so I figured I'd start one.


    Cajun culture began with the arrival of French Acadians (the French-speaking people of the territory that is now mainly Nova Scotia in Canada) who migrated to and settled in what is now Louisiana mainly between 1765 and 1785. Some migrated directly from Acadia, whereas others came after stays in France and the West Indies. All came as part of the Acadian Diaspora, which resulted from their forced exile by the British from Acadia in 1755. Because of additional migrants who arrived in the early 1800s and a high birth rate, the Acadians increased in numbers rapidly and were soon the most numerous group in many locales where they settled. Once settled in Lousiana, in environments very different from Acadia and in contact with other cultures including Black Creoles, American Indians, Germans, Spaniards, and Italians, the Acadian culture began to change, eventually becoming what has come to be called Cajun culture. With the exception of those in the levee-land region who lost their land to Anglos, most Cajuns lived in relative isolation in rural communities where they farmed, fished, or raised cattle.

    I was really curious to see if I could understand Cajun dialect (if that's the correct word ?)
    And I do, I understand most of it except few words and some moments where the accent is very strong (sounds a bit like French Canadian/Qubcois)

    That's awesome! Sadly, French is being spoken less and less in Cajun households. My Cajun side of the family doesn't speak it fluently but can understand some.

    I noticed one thing in France. All regional languages and dialects have been nearly wiped out, but there are still accents and French cuisine is also very regional. It's almost like cuisine is the way in which French retained their regional pride still.

    That's everywhere somewhat the case, even in the Netherlands. French however are more visibly proud of their regional cuisines next to their higher cuisine. More people cherish it instead of forgetting that aspect of their culture.

    Cajuns take a lot of pride in their food as well. It's a small community compared to others in America but everyone knows about Cajun cuisine.

    And they will for centuries to come. Easily one of the best cuisines in the US if not the best. And it's a peasant cuisine as well. French culture leaves room for both peasant as higher cuisine as I said earlier and excels at both.
