My community story illustrates the journey of the Acadians and their journey into the Cajun Culture that is now rooted in Louisiana. I was born to a Cajun family and my heritage is a large part of who I am.
The journey that I chose to write about was the journey that the Acadian people had from their original home of Acadiana to Louisiana. It is a story of strong roots that are set in family and deep culture. I identify heavily with this because like the Acadian people I was often uprooted when I did not want to go, and I had to make the most of those situations throughout my life.
