Why did Acadians come to Canada?
They came as french colonists to colonise new brunswick and nova scotia. That is all I know so far.
The Acadians originally came from France. They spoke French. For many Acadians, especially those in Atlantic Canada, French is still the language they speak.
The Acadians were French settlers in Canada who were ultimately expelled by the British. They migrated mostly to Louisiana.
The Acadians were passed over to the French and British many times then after Confederation they became part of Canada.
In that time, there was a lot of tension in Canada. France had just lost Canada to Britain, and Britain was uncomfortable with all of the French people in the area. The British had the Acadians pack up, and kicked them all from their homeland. They were sent to various places along the future US's east coast, and into the territory surrounding the Gulf of Mexico. Louisiana.
The French West Indies
British North America Yes, it was called British North America. This was to designate where we now call Canada. It was called British North America because the British had control over hear and it was to the North of America (It still is). The Acadians If you are wondering about the Acadians they lived in where we now call Atlantic Canada but they call Acadia. The Acadians were French Immigrants/Settlers.
Acadians and inuit.
It depends on which land you are talking about. French settlers became known as Acadians by making their home in part of Nova Scotia in Canada, around 1605. They were removed from their homes and deported by the ruling English from Nova Scotia in 1755. This is the year they began to arrive in Louisiana, and the word "Acadian" evolved into "Cajun". this is wrong Before the 1600s there was no group of people known… Read More
From the Acadians settling in Louisiana. The French culture.
The Acadian Exodus from Nova Scotia happened between 1755 and 1765.
no because the british exiled the acadians when the came to Canada
The name "Cajun" is short for Acadian. The Acadians were ran out of Canada.
They were forced there by British oppressors. Most came by ship.
Many Acadians left Louisiana to move to Nova Scotia during the Revolutionary War. Many were considered British citizens and the government promised to resettle them there,.
The cajuns come from french people living off the coast of Canada in a place called acadia. When the English took over this land, the Acadians were forced to leave acaidia and settle down in Louisiana. (this is were the fictional poem Evangeline comes in) There, they formed themselves into a group they called the cajuns. (short for acadians) and formed their own culture with their own language, religion, flag, dance, and art.
The Acadians are, indeed, one of the original groups of francophone Canadians. Acadia, although a French settlement in North America, was a separate colony from what would originally be considered Canada (i.e. Ontario and Quebec).
The Acadians were French.
Who were the descendants of the Acadians the French Canadians who were evicted from Canada for refusing to swear allegiance to the British king?
Theses people were called Cajuns.
The Acadians were mostly Roman Catholic.
When the Britain feared that the Acadians could go to France and defeat them they made the Acadians sign a decloration but when the Acadians refused a utrech was signed and acadians were kicked out of there homes,farms,and went going off to France for help
Most Acadians wer Roman Catholic
Because a british officer claimed the farmers were enemies because they refused to take an oath of allegiance to the protestant British King.
Britain forced the Acadians to leave Nova Scotia because the Acadians refused to take an oath of allegiance.
The Acadians wanted to save their land but they were born in France and due to them being French the Acadians automatticaly swore loyalty to the French.Due to this the Acadians were unable and did not want to give their loyalty to Britain and it's rulers.Their born country was more important to most Acadians in Acadia.Ther were 12,000 Acadians living in Acadia and 10,000 did not take the oath and swear loyalty to Britain.So that… Read More
ummmm i dunno <--- Really? *sigh* The Acadians were depoted in 1758.
little kids is what the Acadians liked to eat
The name is of Spanish origin and they came south with the Acadians (Cajuns) and were absorbed by them in southwestern Louisiana.
In 1713, Britain told the Acadians to leave within that year.
The expulsion of the acadians was NOT legal. The british colonies expelled them anyways.
Tension and mistrust arising from the war between New France and 13 English colonies led to the expulsion of the Acadians. The British thought the Acadians were a threat to appropriation of the land. The Acadians also failed to make an unqualified oath of allegiance to the British Crown.
Although the Acadians professed to be neutral, some history texts claim that 300 armed Acadians were found in Fort Beausejour when it fell to the British.
The Acadians usually made their own music or danced. And they would play games.
The Acadians wanted to murder the Canadian government to take the money from them
yes we do! the Acadians left the Dykes behind and that proofs it!

The Acadians didn't surrender to the British. Why? Because the British were of different religion and they were not to be trusted.
The French moved to Louisiana in the eighteenth century. When the Acadians settled in they made the french move
The English. That is incorrect... Great Britain deported the Acadians for failure to pledge their allegiance to the British Crown.
The deportation of the Acadians really hasn't ended yet, and maybe it never will. Each year, descendants of the deported Acadians return on a pilgrimage to Acadia, from all over North America, in search of their roots.
they were farmers
Yup, the Acadians have butts. But most french don't have any balls. (Pardon my French) Take a peek here for more historical info...... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acadians Hope this helps! no they didn't *sarcasticly*
Originally from France to Canada and then to Louisiana Acadia was the original name of what we now know as Nova Scotia. The original settlers came there as fishermen from all over France and would dry Cod they had caught near it's shores. In 1604 the original French settlement was started on Saint Croix Island with a colony of 79 men. The following spring 35 of the 79 men were dead the following spring and… Read More
The Acadians was the name given to French immigrants who settled in "Acadia", an area that now includes Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Maine and Quebec. So it's not really correct to say that the Acadians "moved" to Nova Scotia. You may actually be thinking of the expulsion of the Acadians, as immortalized in Longfellow's "Evangeline" (which is set in Grand Pre, Nova Scotia). The Acadians were expelled because some of them refused… Read More
