The Expulsion of the Acadians

The sad history of state-sponsored ethnic cleansing in North America begins with the story of the British expulsion of the Acadians in 1755.

Professor Amy Sturgis explains that the Acadians were peaceful French colonists who had prospered in Nova Scotia.

The British forcibly removed the Acadians from their homes and scattered them across North America. The expulsion effectively ended the Acadian way of life forever.

How might U.S. history have been different if this first ethnic cleansing had never occurred?

How might America be different today if the Acadians’ property and rights had been respected?

Might the Acadian way of life have influenced the United States for the better?

Québec History 10 – The Acadians Deportation

Québec a Nation History (Part 10)

The Acadians Deportation

The Acadians are the descendants of the French who settled in Acadia located in the Canadian Maritime provinces Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and in the US state of Maine.

Acadia was founded in a region geographically separate from Quebec, Québecers and Acadians have different culture. But during the deportation many refugees move in Québec, today almost all Québecers can say they have a Acadian ancestor.

In the Great Expulsion of 1755-1763, mostly during the Seven Years’ War, British colonial officers, New England legislators and militia deported more than 14,000 Acadians from the maritime region.

Many later settled in Louisiana, where they became known as Cajuns. University of Maine at Fort Kent history professor Roger Paradis said that this was a clear case of ethnic cleansing and genocide because, an attempt was made to make French Acadians disappear by scattering them throughout the 13 colonies.

It was unnecessarily cruel in the sense that ships were overloaded, which resulted in disease, death, and the sinking of vessels.

Families were broken up and the Acadians were sent to an alien and unfriendly land of exile.
