  • Support archaeologist efforts to find remnants of the first Acadian settlement in Louisiana.
  • Promote Acadiana as a World Heritage Site "twinned" with Grand-Pré, NS.
  • Support our participation in the Grand Reveille Acadien (October 8, 2020).
  • Help Dr. Jason Theriot transcribe interviews for his upcoming book, Frenchie: The Story of the French-Speaking Cajuns in WWII (UL Press).
  • Digitize our tapes of rare and valuable interviews.
  • Promote French immersion schools.
  • Continue our Living Legend program.
  • Create and publish our newsletter (La Parole).
You can donate online or by sending your check to The Acadian Museum, P.O. Box 53597, Lafayette, LA 70505.
