Who we are
The French-American Heritage Foundation is based on the unifying factor of the French language in many different American Cultural heritages, whether Cajun, Haitian, West-African, North-African, French-Canadian or francophone European. Our primary goal is to celebrate the ways in which these many French-American cultures have contributed to-and continue to enrich- the culture of the United States.
What we do
The F-AHF will sponsor education and public programming focused around French-American Heritage and is working to sponsor in the future a festival of French-language cultures to be known as Franco-Fête. This website will expand to include information on all the many French-American cultures. We want it to be a source for genealogy and family history, the immigrant experience, and for resources available in the French Language to new arrivals. Your contributions to the site are invited. The illustration on this page shows early French and French-Canadian explorers. Many other French-language cultural groups have also come to Minnesota. Tell us your family’s story.
