Avoyelles Parish is famous for its Cajun/French speaking history dating back before 300 BC as the various tribes of Native Americans settled in the region. By 1650, there were various Spanish and African traders in the area. Later settlers from Normandy, France, Scotland, Belgium, Italy, Germany and Spain established towns and villages. African Americans who had served under Napoleon as well as some loyal to France in Haiti and the French West Indies came into the area to settle. Avoyelles Parish is a real mixture of cultures and ethnic backgrounds.
