Capturing and Preserving
Our History and Culture

The Story of the Acadians

The Story of the Acadians is a tale of discovery, tragedy and determination – of a peace loving people who never give up. Learn how the first French settlers brought with them pre-fabricated homes from France to North America in 1604, hear about their strong relations with the native people whose alliances helped to save their lives, witness the innovative designs of the French in the construction of the unique fortresses they built, as well as the intricate system of dykes they introduced into North America.

Most of all, learn how the French became Acadians with a culture of their own – a culture of family values, of hard work and of a determination never to be destroyed despite numerous attacks by the British – assaults which culminated in one of the worst human tragedies of all time – the Deportation from Nova Scotia.

“The Story Of the Acadians” features dazzling footage from three different countries – France, USA and Canada as the film follows in the footsteps of the French settlers and tracks their progress.  It is an unforgettable account that shows how a nation without borders has survived for more than two-hundred-and-fifty years and has become even stronger for its struggles. 

This video had its European premier in France when Maine's Governor Baldacci presented the film to the French Government during his trade mission in October of 2005.
