Map and Directions
From 1764 through 1788, when Louisiana was under Spanish governance, some 3,000 French-speaking Acadians settled in the prairies, bayous, and marshes of Louisiana. A popular conception of le grand dérangement is that of a "straight line" migration from Nova Scotia. The diaspora, in fact, lasted a period of 25 years and the Acadians' journeys often made detours through France, the British Colonies of the Eastern Seaboard, or the islands of the Caribbean. Once situated in Louisiana, the Acadians established a lifestyle, foodways, and culture that continue to enrich and define the region.
