Art and the Deportation


The Deportation of 1755 is a key element of the Acadian identity. Many artists have been inspired by this event, including Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, author of the poem Evangeline: A Tale of Acadie, published in 1847. Contemporary artists still draw inspiration from this theme to create some of their works.
