    I usually get emotional about Acadians in August but I've been emotional about Acadians all year lol when I was young and learning about Acadian history and my heritage and all of that culture stuff I was bored by it and thought it was too much of the same annoying shit over and over again and now I'm just amazed by it all. Who cares if it's plain and not full of bright colours, huge art pieces, innovative structures etc? It is what it is. They tried to destroy it. It's still here.

    I was talking to Ben last night about the Grand Dérangement (Acadian deportation) and he called it genocidal. I had heard some first nations advocates also refer to what happened to the Acadians in the 18th century as genocide. Thinking about it, it seems that if Louisiana had not accepted for Acadians to land there and make it a home, the entire Acadian people might have been wiped out.

    As it stands the records estimate about 55% of Acadians died because of the deportation. I think that if Louisiana had not been a place for Acadians to go to eventually, the Acadians who weren't killed or didn't die on the boats (or from associated displacement effects) would have just started referring to themselves as Quebecois, Indigenous or even of British decent (or whatever else to not be recognized as part of a people who the English were trying to obliterate).

    Getting so tired of how americanized quebecois culture is, might fuck around and bring back the FLQ.

    I now see that they kinda had a point

    #literally all of quebec now is 'we're basically american like the rest of Canada' or #'we're racist because we've convimced ourself that immigrants are responsible for the dissapearence of quebecois culture' #like. is there no third option???? #I wanna partake in the preservation of quebecois and acadian tradition against americanization without missplaced reactionary politics that #hurt the people who are also victims of the English #(and yhis isnt about france. fuck france french culture. but quebec has a distinct national identity thats dissapearing because of canadian #anglophones and americans) #oc#shosh's rants

    We were talking the other night about how people locally seemed to react a bit differently to the lockdowns than elsewhere and came to the theory that because of the history of what happened here, how le Grand dérangement of 1755 affected our ancestors and how this event is constantly being referred to people are just always on the edge of thinking "they could do it to us again".

    idk what just made me think about this, but at my old job I worked with this woman who was like...constantly trying to assert her dominance over me in all things Irish??? 

    Like she never said all this explicitly but the vibe was very much “I’m more Irish than you and know more than you ever possibly could about Ireland and being Irish/Irish-American bc I still have close cousins in Ireland while all your Irish relatives emigrated to the USA at least 100 years ago”

    (which my response to was mostly “a’ight bud, good for you”) 

    but so ONE TIME we were at this local Irish pub - it was a sunday afternoon and my mom and her husband 

    (and me occasionally, but a lot less often the last like 6 or so years) 

    have been playing at the seisiun they host every week for at least 15 years now so we’re all pretty friendly with the owners (Mary and Patrick, who moved to the US from Ireland when their kids where still kids) and everyone who works there

    Patrick, the head cook, goes pretty much exclusively by the nickname Patsy. i’m fairly certain I’ve never actually heard anyone call him Patrick. I only know for a fact that that is his name, because when I mentioned to the both of them that I had changed my name to Rowan Patrick, he commented on us now sharing a name. 

    But, back to Patsy

    Which, if you don’t live in North America, on top of being a fairly common nickname for Patrick among other names, is also a word used to describe someone who is a scapegoat or a dupe.

    SO. This woman I was talking about. We were at the pub, and Mary came by to say as she always does when she has a chance (with a hug and an exclamation of “How are ye, Chicken?!”), and after she bustled off again I was explaining to my coworker

    “Yeah, she and her husband run this place, Mary works the front, Patsy runs the kitchen and-”

    “Um” (snotty voice) “you know a patsy is like. A scapegoat, right? You shouldn’t call him that”

    And i just like. had to stop and squint at her. Like.

    Excuse???? Do you know these people? No. So I had to be like

    “Uh you know it was a nickname for Patrick before it was an Americanism for someone who gets thrown under the bus right? And that this man is from Ireland, where it is, as far as I know, only a nickname. Right??”

    She got kinda huffy at that and didn’t really respond, but she also, from then on, stopped trying to make herself seem superior because she was ‘’’more’’’’ Irish than me and had spent time in Ireland visiting cousins or whatever she was trying to do there, which was nice because it had been getting extremely annoying by that point

    #stories #i truly have no idea what reminded of this as i haven't even seen this woman in like 3 years #but i had to write it down or it would've been going around and around my head for days #patsy#nicknames#idk man #like. i'm proud of being irish and it's def the part of my heritage i identify the most with #probs mostly bc of my dad who very obviously was raised irish catholic and holds a Strong dislike of all things Britain #(he is also acadian which means he has like. double the reason to hate the british) #but like? i don't feel the need to constantly rub how irish i am in other people's faces?? (at least i don't think i do....) #like that just smacks to me of being super insecure about it for some reason

    ROCH
    J’ai dans mon sang , tes hivers Sous mes pas, tes forêts Dans mes mains, tes rivières Et dans mon cœur, tes secrets J’ai défriché la terre J’ai semé, labouré Et j’ai nagé dans tes eaux claires Exploré tes sentiers
    NATASHA
    Je suis née sur les vagues Abouti dans tes bras J’ai du sel sur la langue Des mots qui sont à toi Appris à relever la tête Échangé la honte pour la fierté J’ai compris la leçon dans toutes les défaites Comme tu me l’as montré
    REFRAIN/CHORUS
    Et je suis partout à la fois Je chante à pleine voix J’ai grandi, tu vois Je fais vibrer le terre sous la force de mes pas Acadie je veux te crier La force que tu m’as donnée Je veux rire et fêter et quand on aura assez dansé Ce s’ra à mon tour de te bercer

    I fell in love with this song the first time I heard it, almost by accident as it was on the same album as the song I actually was listening to (Garou and Céline Dion singing Sous Le Vent). But it was this one, Mon Tour De Te Bercer I kept coming back to, the rhythm is captivating, and the way Roch Voisine and Natasha St. Pier’s voices harmoniously harmonise is just goergeous. And it certainly makes me want to wander through Acadian forests and swim in rivers and dance and feast!

    "Combining [French] with english is a mistake" so you think all French is the same then

    #you've never heard of acadian french no surprise #it's a 400+ year old language and never changed so english is necessary to use within the french
