1 folder

This collection consists of a proclamation titled “Acadian Heritage Week” signed by L.J. “Joey” Durel, Jr., City Parish President, and Lafayette Consolidated Government on September 12, 2005. This proclamation in 2005 marks the 250th anniversary of the Deportation and Exile of the Acadians from their homes in maritime Canada in 1755. Many Acadians made their way to South Louisiana, where their descendants have formed the cornerstone of the state’s Cajun life and culture.
