Creole in Louisiana
Friday in class we were trying to figure out what creole means to Louisianians. I looked it up because I was curious. Wikipedia says: "The term "creole" denotes a culture which embraces the influences of French, Spanish, African and Native American peoples in Louisiana." That makes sense considering the butchered definition we tried to give in class. We all thought that creole referred to people that are further south than we are. Creole people are just like their food, if you want to use a bit of imagination! When we think of creole food we think of all different blends of seafood and spices. Louisiana Creoles are a mix of cultures, or spices if you will, too!
