    French Acadian Culture

    May of 2018 sees the collection of French Acadian Artist Claude Edwin Theriault moving to the Digby Co land of Maude Lewis.It is the News Trend to watch in mainstream representations of French Acadian Culture that are always straight out of Wikipedia in that standard issue historic patrimonial sense. There is so much more to this vibrant community then what is out there. Early artist inspiration was Maritime folk Art , now more First Nations Inspired and runs parallel to equally interesting Nova Scotia Mi’kmaq Culture and will continue to do so.

     Since there is little room for fresh self representing artistic voice and expression.If the standard Canadian Arts Council clan are not behind it, then it does not see the light of day. All cultural representations are in Acadian Music, Culture, Festivals and Genealogy in Nova Scotia.... and that's it that's all, very challenging for an artist to have a voice. Yet the spirit of French Acadians is very vibrant and innovative, pity it is not encouraged more. Now with Web 2.0 help time will tell, newly created MBF-Lifestyle FaceBook Lifestyle Group is trending, visit and join this free group be part of the change. Till then go have a look at the busy innovative Shamanic Inspired Online French Acadian Art Gallery of Claude Edwin Theriault it just might show you a different side of the Culture, yet parallel mainstream.

     Written in The english language and published in 1847. The poem follows the "Story of a nice Acadian Girl" named Evangeline and her pain body search for her lost love Gabriel, set during the time of the Expulsion of the Acadians.....classic opera template. It became Longfellow's most famous work in his lifetime and remains one of his most popular and enduring works..... The poem had a powerful effect in defining both Acadian history and identity in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. More recent scholarship has revealed the historical errors in the poem and the complexity of the Expulsion and those involved, which the poem ignores

     The current Acadian cultural Hermitage site is "Grand-Pré Heritage site" key note as to why it became Canada's 16th World Heritage Site inscribed by UNESCO in 2012. Since it is where the tourist go to ... uncover the tale of Le Grand Dérangement: a tragic event in Acadian history that has shaped the vibrant culture of modern-day Acadians across the globe through its quiet but powerful renaissance. Yet there is no sympathy for todays plight of the close to 70 million people currently in a state of deportation.A is shown in the Al Weiwei documentary Human Flow. That we are all in a state of Human Flow like Al Weiwei tries show us , yet, no one is interested.
