Cajuns are the French colonists who settled the Canadian maritime provinces (Nova Scotia and New Brunswick) in the 1600s. The settlers named their region "Acadia," and were known as Acadians.

It is here the Acadians eventually became known as "Cajuns."

To start, this jambalaya is much too loose and brown rice is good but not in this dish. As to what is cajun and what is creole, cajun is country style food. It has it's roots with the French Arcadians. It has that infulence and also native American and African influences. Creole has it's roots in the cities where the influences are from French, Spanish and African. It is usually less spicy and uses more sauces.
