Cajuns are fun, caring, food-loving people but we can say some crazy stuff. When it comes to communication and the way we speak, an outsider might be lost, to say the least. One almost has to be from our neck of the woods to "get it".

There's no place like Acadiana. You can travel far and wide and you will never find an area of the globe quite like Lafayette and Acadiana. To describe us as "unique" would be an understatement. Our food, music, the way we talk...all indigenous to South Louisiana.
