Creole was used casually as an identity in the 1700's in Louisiana.
Starting in the very early 1800's in Louisiana, Creole began to take on a more political meaning and solid identity.
The commonly accepted definition of Louisiana Creole today is a person descended from ancestors in Louisiana before the Louisiana Purchase by the United States in 1803.
An estimated 7,000 European immigrants settled in Louisiana during the 18th century, one percent of the number of British colonists in the Thirteen Colonies along the Atlantic coast.
(Since the mid-twentieth century, the number of Spanish-speaking Creoles has declined in favor of English speakers, and few people under 80 years old speak Spanish.) They have maintained cultural traditions from the Canary Islands, where their ancestors came from, to the present.
It was spoken by the ethnic French and Spanish and their Creole descendants.
As more refugees were allowed in Louisiana, Haitian émigrés who had first gone to Cuba also arrived.
These groups had strong influences on the city and its culture.
As in many other colonial societies around the world, creole was a term used to mean those who were "native-born", especially native-born Europeans such as the French and Spanish.
It also came to be applied to African-descended slaves and Native Americans who were born in Louisiana.
