What are the cultural differences between the Cajun and Creole peoples? Creole people are of African, Afro-Caribbean, French and Spanish heritage while the Cajun people are Acadian and are influenced by Spanish, Native Americans, Euro Americans, and African Americans. They both have a French dialect but the Cajuns are farmers and trappers. 2. How has Cajun music attempted to revitalize Cajun culture? Unwelcome in the Spanish – dominated New Orleans, many Cajuns moved to the tidal flats and bayous in southwest Louisiana where they kept their French traditions and language while coming into contact with different types of people. Their life style inspired songs and added to the revitalization of their culture.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
