How Did They Name Canada?

The Naming of Canada

 

Three explorers were hiking through a vast forest that would eventually become Canada.

 

"You know," said the first explorer, "we should name this vast forest we're hiking through."

 

"I know," said the second explorer. "We'll each pick a letter and then make a name out of that."

 

"Good idea," said the third explorer. "You go first."

 

"Okay," said the first explorer. "C, ay."

 

"My turn," said the second explorer. "N, ay."

 

Unfortunately, before the third explorer could choose a letter, a bear jumped out of the trees and killed and ate all three explorers. Eventually, some guy came along and named the country after his aunt.

I had a year of Missouri history :rofl2: Nothing is more boring that missouri history

 

Did you learn about the Cajan's . In 1755, Nova Scotia, under British rule, expelled the French people called Acadians. A lot of them went to Missouri and Louisiana.

the cajuns?

 

 

 

Contrary to popular belief, Cajuns do not descend solely from Acadian exiles who settled in south Louisiana in the eighteenth century. They also descend from other ethnic groups with whom those exiles intermarried over many generations, including Spanish, German, and French Creole settlers.

 

 

boy, cajun food is some good eating. nothing like some good 'ol gumbo and jambalaya with andouille sausage. :drool:
