Sir William Price History Center


This exhibition covers the history of Acadians from the colonization to their presence in Kénogami today. It addresses the deportation, the migrations and, most importantly, the Acadian families originating from Îles de la Madeleine, Côte-Nord and the Maritime provinces, who came to settle here over a century ago. Following the journey of these families, the CHSWP team met a thriving community that is still part of the cultural landscape of Kénogami. From street names and songs, to cultural and culinary traditions, Acadian heritage is everywhere in North America, in both smaller towns and large cities. As National Acadian Day took place a few weeks ago, this exhibition is a celebration of the presence and cultural heritage of Acadians.
