The "Acadie Vivante" showcases the resilience of contemporary Acadian culture by presenting many traditional customs that are still practiced today. These traditions are documented through original video-based interviews conducted with women and men who still practice these customs or who have adapted them to modern-day settings, as well as with various specialists who contextualise these traditional practices. Various aspects of Acadian culture, such as folklore, material culture, food, as well as Acadian language and identity, are illustrated in these traditions.
This site provides a journey through the memory of Acadians, the French-speakers of Atlantic Canada. In 2004, they celebrated the 400th anniversary of the first effort to create a French settlement in North America, in what was to become their part of the world. A year later, in 2005, they marked the 250th anniversary of their deportation, what they call their Grand dérangement (or Great Upheaval), at the hands of the British. This site provides both images and sounds connected with these two anniversaries, including reference to how they were marked on earlier occasions.
