Cajun: Origin and history

The Cajuns, French-speaking and Catholics, are the direct heirs of the French settlers living in Louisiana, in the United States of America. From this American territory, inhabited mostly by a component of French-Canadian immigrants, then united with the presence of a French-speaking African-American population gave rise to the name of Cajun, from which the spice then took its name. Spicy Cajun cuisine is very popular in certain circles, as is music. Let's say that we are faced with a historical-territorial minority that lives a situation similar to that of other minorities in Europe, with all the advantages and disadvantages of the case.
