Resolution Honoring French Creoles


      A resolution is expected to be introduced at the next session of the state legislature by State Senator Eric LaFleur to honor the French Louisiana Creoles of Evangeline, St.Landry, Avoyelles, Pointe Coupee and Natchitoches parishes. Local French Instructor and Historian John Lafleur said  “This will afford us the long overdue recognition as being the founders of Louisiana’s oldest international French speaking people .” The resolution calls for the designation of July 14, Bastille Day, the anniversary of the French Revolution as a special day to honor Louisiana’s French Creoles. Lafleur  said this historic day will serve as an annual commemoration to honor all Louisiana French Creole families in all our racial and ethnic varieties whose 500 year culture and traditions remain the cultural foundation of Louisiana’s earliest culinary, linguistic and social traditions.  Lafleur is the author of “Creole, Gourmet Secrets of Louisiana” and a second book is due to be released later this year.
