As Louisianians we have lots of traits that make us very different here in the states, Cuisine, History, Culture, Accents, Unique Languages, All of these things that very few states ( only possibly 2 other have " but not even comparable " off the top of my head ) have.

With distinctive culture comes a title and name for the people. There are 2 forms in Louisiana mainly nand most notably ( Creoles and Cajuns ), or some even just go with Louisianian as a representation of all things Louisiana, and even some choose out of their patriotism, just American.

So which do you choose, ( Creole, Cajun, Louisianian or American )

I don't relate to Americans as much as I do to Cajuns or Creoles or Asians or American Africans, I can't really choose one so I'm a Louisianaian.
