CBC Arts: Acadian artifacts salvaged from Louisiana flood

CBC Arts: Acadian artifacts salvaged from Louisiana flood: “Hundreds of Acadian artifacts from a Louisiana museum are drying out in the care of archivists in the aftermath of Hurricane Rita.

Among the artifacts rescued from flooding was the royal proclamation in which the Queen acknowledged for the first time the wrongs done to the Acadian people during the deportation of 1755″

You can’t keep us Acadiens from disappearing! It’s great to know that some of the artifacts were recovered and may be saved. If nothing else, let this be a reminder for all museums and libraries to have a disaster plan – or at least not to keep valuable items on the bottom shelves.
