When Acadians were driven from their Canadian homelands in the 1700’s, many went to the Caribbean islands. They intermarried with African slaves and their children came to be known as Creole. When Spain had colonies in North America, she did not manage them well and eventually lost them. Children born in these Spanish colonies were called Creoles and were ignored by the mother country and allowed to hold only the lower positions in religion and government. You’re fortunate if you can tie into this rich history.
