3,000 Refugees Establish Cajun Nation

From 1765 to 1785 about ~3,000 Cajun refugees traveled to settle in Louisiana. In 1785, seven ships brought more exiled Cajun refugees to Louisiana. After years of preparation, Spain paid for about 1600 Cajuns to travel from France to Louisiana, which was now a Spanish colony. Spain wanted more settlers in the land to protect against English invasion.

Once there, they were given free choice of where to go. Most of the 1785 Cajun settlers decided to go to the Bayou Lafourche area or along the River towards Baton Rouge. Some went to the Attakapas/Opelousas area. 

Though a small group arrived by boat in 1788, the Acadian migration had ended. By 1790, pretty much all of the Acadians who came to Louisiana were settled in, though some Acadians were probably in the group that migrated to Louisiana when 10,000 refugees escaped St. Domingue in 1809. The largest communities were in Attakapas, Opelousas, the Acadian Coast, and Bayou Lafourche.

Smaller groups were found in a few areas. There were also small pockets of Acadians in the cities (ie. New Orleans, Baton Rouge), along smaller bayous, and in other settlements.

A very proud people, the Cajuns retained their French culture, language and lifestyle which has become a major cultural influence to this day.
