Course Detail: LLCAJUN - Acadian to Cajun: The Great Deportation from Nova Scotia to Louisiana
The name Cajun is a corruption of the word Acadian. Cajuns are the descendants of French-speaking Acadians. Several thousand French-speaking refugees from the region of Acadie (now Nova Scotia, Canada) made their way to Louisiana after being expelled in 1755 by the newly ascendant British, and sent penniless from their home territory.
