Introduction

Who are the Acadians?


Acadians are descendants of early French pioneers who came to North America in 1604, to establish colonies in and around Nova Scotia. Once these colonies were formed, this broad area was named Acadie. The early Acadians lived happily in Acadie for 100 years, until France lost the colonies to Britain in 1713 in the Treaty of Utrecht. Under British rule, the Acadians were forced to pledge their allegiance to Britain and renounce their religion, or face exile. They refused, and beginning in 1755, the Acadians were loaded onto ships and then dumped at ports along the Eastern Seaboard.
