Lafayette Parish is at the heart of Louisiana's Cajun & Creole Country. The area's cultural origins date back to the 18th century, when Canada's Acadians were expelled and settled in Louisiana among the Atakapa-Ishak and other Indigenous Peoples. Over the years, the blending of Native, French, Creole, African, Spanish, Lebanese, Jewish and other European and Asian cultures has made this area the special place it is.
