South Central Louisiana is a part of "Acadiana," the name given to the region of southern Louisiana that is the home of the Cajun (or "Acadian" as they were originally known) people. Everything that made Cajun culture popular came from this region: food, music, literature, and of course, the unique variant of French spoken here. This particular area, along with the Cajun Prairie, is effectively an enclave in the southern United States: an area that is predominantly French in background and culture, but still distinct from French culture in Metropolitan France or Quebec.
