Acadians descend from the original French settlers in the area that is now Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. Acadia was founded four years before the founding of Quebec, and Acadians generally come from different parts of France than do Quebecers. In the expulsion of 1755, Acadians were uprooted by the British. Many resettled in Louisiana, where they became known as Cajuns.
