[News] Vaudreuil becomes governor of Canada. He is replaced as governor of Louisiana by Louis Billouart de Kerlerec, who concentrates on restoring alliances with the Indians. A naval officer, Kerlerec also provides refuge to the French Acadians in their removal from Nova Scotia to Louisiana; in future generations, their descendents will be known as "Cajuns."
