RouxThe English were actually the ones who started addressing the Acadian people as Cajun. This was because the French pronunciation of “A” was softly spoken and the “di” equally sounded like a “J.” The Cajun/Acadian culture continued to take root in Louisiana and turned into a strong and dominant culture. When marriages between Cajun people and other cultures occurred, the spouses would soon be cooking Gumbo, dancing to Cajun Zydeco music, and speaking Cajun French.
