University Press of Mississippi

During the colonial period, French and American colonies struggled to survive in the New World. As these two separate and distinct cultures developed, major changes in politics and socio-economics contributed to changes and adaptations to the French mentality in the Midwest. The Treaty of Paris, Louisiana Purchase, German immigration, and early twentieth century xenophobia influenced the French mentality, often marginalizing the culture. In order for the culture to survive, elements like language became less important than traditions and customs like La Guiannée.

Keywords:   Treaty of Paris, German Immigration, Culture Marginalization, French Mentality, La Guiannée
