The Past and Present

louisiana USA


Creolelization is becoming more of a reality in America and throughout the Creole World.. Creoles are finally beginning to recognize that they are indeed unique and different than The Stereotype African American .. Our People and Culture in the New World has existed long before America was a Nation..

In face the first people of Color brought to the Americas were Creoles...In the early slave trade with the American Colonies they were called the " Atlantic Creoles " In the many of the Caribbean Islands Such as Haiti, Belize., St Thomas, Jamaica, Martinique Cuba and Porto Rico many of the Creoles outnumbered the European Whites..Not to Mention, Panama Brazil, Columbia, Venezuela and Puerto Rico, just to name a few ..



450 Years in the New world

and still Ticking


Within this amalgamation of people existed a strong and well established Creole Culture ...Remember Louisiana and many Islands in the New World were french Possessions and so was the Culture..All the Races mixed and intermarried to form the Creole Melting pot that We so often enjoy today...In Louisiana Before the Louisiana Purchase Blacks, white and Native Americans mixed freely with one another... In fact They all spoke the same language and in most cases intermarried..

This all change when the Americans took possession of Louisiana .. You see...In the American Colonies the mentality of the English was that all People of Black Heritage were considered Chattel and Inferior in nature and were treated as such and there was no such thing as Racial tolerance where as in the French Colonies Blacks were treated as Humans but with limited rights...The behavior of Slaves and Free Persons of Color was governed by the Black Codes ...A set of Laws that governed the behavior and treatment of People of african Descent...

Also Most French Colonies consisted of a 3 tiered Society ..The Whites, The Mulatto, and the Blacks and each group was governed by a specific set of Behaviors ..There was absolutely no comparison to the English Colonial system and that of the Latin french Colony ofLouisiana. It was during the time of Americas occupation of Louisiana that the Creole Culture went through a dramatic and drastic change...From that time to the present the Creole was striped of His Language, His Culture , His Racial identify, His Class status and was relagated to that of the lower Clase..

Whites were forbidden to mix with the Creole and Our property rights, Our limited Freedom and Our right to self Identify was taken away ....Today, Hower many Creoles are beginning to regain their sense of pride and now are self identifying as Creoles because they know that there is a difference and that They are no longer willing to allow someone to declassify them ..Creole Culture has a long History of Achievements and Our Ancestors have always been the First to Make the change that this Society has so desperately needed ..Our Ancestors have pave the way and because of Our Ability to survive as a People We will become even stronger in Our Desire to Preserve Our Culture , History and Pride









Proud to be Creole
