Since the British had conquered Nova Scotia after years of squabbling with the French over the Maritime Provinces, they demanded unconditional allegiance, something the proud French-speaking and Catholic Acadians were unwilling to give. As a result, the Acadians were deported, eventually bringing their distinct identity, heritage, language and culture to Southwestern Louisiana, creating what is referred to today as Cajun Country.
