New Codofil TV Spots

Very cute commercials promoting French in Louisiana. Cajun french was squelched in Louisiana. My Granny tells stories about how they weren't allowed to speak it in school- they would be whipped (lighlty, I assume) by their teachers.

My grandmeres & grandperes where not lightly spanked for speaking French. They were beaten and humiliated. One of my grandmeres was put on her knees, after being beaten, in the cloak room and forgotten there. It was many hours after school was finished that she braved stepping out of the cloak room. She walked home in the dark.
