Excerpt from La Parole, a Cajun Newsletter as published today April 30th, 2021:

''..Acadian historian, Living Legend and tour
operator Richard Laurin (shown above), shared

with us his discovery of a probable pre-
deportation structure east of Canning, NS, and

consisting of a huge cross dyke along the ancient
Rivière-des-Vieux-Habitants (today’s Habitant River) where extended families like the Saulniers, Comeau and
Trahans lived. Today, the fragile structure that remains runs along the mouth and the
entire south side of the Habitant River shoreline.
Says Laurin: “Although, altered and partially repaired at the end of the 19th century, many firmly believe it predates the
English presence in the area...’’
Centuries later, what remains of the construction site is longer than a football field and is at
least 100 feet wide. Amazingly, it was all done by hand and managed to block two cycles per day
of the highest tides in the world.
By accomplishing the irrigation and desalination of soils submerged there for more than 8,000 years,
this masterful cross-dyke and aboiteaux dam (levée) gave the inhabitants and builders of the time–(between 1680 and
1755) – much fertile farmland which definitely contributed to make the region known as the ‘’bread basket of old Acadie.’’
To all those who embrace the history of this
valiant, triumphant people and to those who
have thought about the harmony that must have
reigned among Acadians living in little villages of
thatched cottages before the Deportation came,
this is represents a major legacy to the golden
age of the first Acadie....''
