The British expelled
ancestors of Louisiana's present-day Cajuns from Acadie (today's Nova Scotia)
in a series of forced transportations between 1755 and 1763. The Acadians were a peaceful, pastoral people
who wished to remain politically neutral. Therefore, they refused to swear allegiance to either the King of England or of France.
They went passively into exile, but have kept their language and customs intact into the 21st century.
(1702-1765), known as Beau Soleil, was one of the few Acadians who dared to
fight back against the forced expulsion.
He led assaults on the British until captured in 1765 and sent to Louisiana where he died. He is fondly remembered in Cajun folklore.
Our Borzoi girl Golightly Beau Soleil Lagniappe (Beautiful Sun) is named in his honor.
