This is about the Arcadian-Acadian heritage, people and Tribe. I have mentioned this subject often in this blog. I recommend that you read the rest of this post first and then come back to the links to other posts in this blog. Here are some of the posts and a page where Acadians or their institutions are mentioned are represented:
To show how Acadian experience is relevant to the question of how Americans govern themselves and have decided to do so in the past I will quote one of my own post in this blog at length this post in turn has links to longer and very worthy sources that can help one to understand how all of these historical issues are interrelated.
“The first really key point is that the real roots of the American Revolution occurred in a larger colonial context. I am going to recommend a book that does not declare ( as I do here and now) that the Acadian expulsion (loosely described in Longfellow’s epic poem Evangeline) were a principal cause of and stimulus to the American revolution. But it does show the connections of this event to the revolutionary ferment in a broad contest. In this regard I recommend Leach’s book. http://www.amazon.com/Roots-Conflict-Colonial-Americans-1677-1763/dp/0807842583#noop
Secondly, I want to show that the destruction of Acadie was a large and significant act. That it had everything to do with creating a British profile and character the Americans could distrust and that in their early history the Acadians had both elements the Americans were eager to restore to their experience of the British Constitution and also the chivalric and aristocratic values which I argue that we need to restore today. In which regard there is a recent book by John Mack Faragher: http://www.amazon.com/Great-Noble-Scheme-Expulsion-Acadians/dp/0393051358 to understand the British view of how great and wealthy a land the Acadians had created and how eager they were to have its wealth for themselves. The Acadian experience is deeply tied to the American experience as a whole.”
However, in this post I cannot really describe the Acadian people or experience. The best I can go is outline their role in the proposed new regime. I will focus on doing as I have done with other parts of the proposed regime. I will fill out a portion of the Constitution’s demands so that perhaps there can be some light shed on the things they represent. There must be eight hundred forty members of the Acadian Electoral Delegation in the Conclave. I will set out to identify these eight hundred forty and let the rest of the Ethnos Arkadios be seen by that little revelation.

The remainder of the 840 seats after subtracting 732 is 108. There would be 54 seats on a yearly rotation in a twelve year cycle of the Couples serving as family and kinship coordinators. There would 27 seats at random from the guards assigned to the late Basileus. There would be 27 seats assigned first to the late Basileus Harem and if he had fewer than 27 consorts to his Roll of Friends not otherwise seated.
Using these terms and names one could search though my blog posts and piece together quite a bit. This is not the last time the tribe will be mentioned but it is where I will stop for now.
