Katrina Thomas's notes: Predominantly Roman Catholic, Cajuns are descended from French colonists expelled in the 18th century, primarily from Acadia (Nova Scotia). Most of them live in southern Louisiana, dwelling in the bayous and still speaking a French dialect. They are noted for their spicy cuisine and zydeco music, and maintain some unusual customs at their wedding receptions.
