Acadian Themes - First Theme PDF Print E-mail

The Courage of the Acadian People

Grand-Pré National Historic Site of Canada is the most important historic site for the Acadian people. It is a pilgrimage site for Acadians and the world centre for the commemoration of the Deportation. The historic site highlights the period between the Acadian settlement of 1682 and the deportations that began in 1755. It highlights the most painful and the most heroic hours of the Acadians, and stands as an example and a reminder for generations to come of a courageous people.

The three main themes at Grand-Pré are Life in Acadie Before the Deportations, the Expulsion of the Acadians, and the Profound Attachment of Acadians for Grand-Pré.
