The Ten Acadian National Conventions

De 1881 à 1937, les conventions ont favorisé l'éveil du sentiment national et l'affirmation du peuple acadien. Organisées par la Société nationale de l'Assomption, elles ont joué un rôle important dans la sauvegarde du français, l'acadianisation de l'Église et le développement de l'éducation, de l'agriculture, de la colonisation et de l'économie. La première convention eut lieu à Memramcook en 1881 et confirma le choix du 15 août comme fête nationale. La deuxième, tenue à Miscouche en 1884, dota les Acadiens de leurs deux plus puissants symboles : leur drapeau, le tricolore étoilé, et leur hymne, l'ave Maris Stella.
Between 1881 and 1937, these conventions fostered a national feeling among Acadians in all three Maritime provinces. Organized by the Societé nationale l'Assomption, they promoted Acadian influence in the Church and education, championed the use of the French language and encouraged development in agriculture, settlement and the economy. The first convention, at Memramcook in 1881, chose August 15 as the national holiday. The second, held at Miscouche in 1884,

adopted the distinctive flag and the anthem, Ave Maris Stella, which have become enduring symbols of Acadian identity.
