The Acadian Village is a great historical venue that gives one the feel of what life was like in the 1800’s in a Cajun Village. Many of the French Nova Scotians traveled to Louisiana to escape religious persecution. They did so in grand fashion using the available land resources to build extensive communities. In modern times, Cajun culture has spread throughout the world. People want Crawfish (`ecrevisse), Cracklins (Gratons), Boudin, Alligator, Turtle, Wild Hog, Duck, Sweet Dough Pies, and all the great things Cajun, including the music.

To be an Honorary Cajun is simple, you agree to do the following: Eat Cajun food, listen to Cajun Music, be filled with joy (joie de vivre), and pass a good time with laughter, happiness, and jokes. Let the good times roll! Laissez Les bons temps rouler!

Here are a few photos from the Acadian Village. I hope they inspire you to learn more and pay a visit to this wonderful historical cultural center. For more information click here https://acadianvillage.org/ All photos Copyright Albert Moyer, Jr 2021
