The twinning between the city of New Iberia in Louisiana and the city of St Jean d’Angély in France began the 20th of July 1994 by an agreement signed by the New Iberia’s mayor, Cliff Aucoin, and Mr. Combes, mayor of St Jean d’Angély in 1995. This was followed by some exchanges between our two countries.

I had the opportunity to go to the “French Table” to meet some Francophone people, speaking Cajun or modern French. These people often meet at 7 am in Victor’s Cafeteria in New Iberia to have breakfast together, trying to talk in French only. Most of these people learned French thanks to their parents or grandparents who sometimes only spoke French. But they explained to me that at one time it was forbidden to speak French. That’s why few people can speak it today.
