If you're Cajun - the U.S Census wants to know.
It could even mean big bucks for Louisiana.

The State's Creole and Cajun communites are using a new question on the Census to get their hands on some federal money.

Question number 8 asks folks how they identify culturally.
Several groups are asking Creole's and Cajun's to use that question to identify themselves as that.

The move would pave the way for part of $400 Billion dollars for Louisiana.
It would go to everything from everything from education to museums.

There's no word on how many folks would have to identify themselves are Creoles and / or Cajun's before the State sees some of the cash.
