    I don't disagree totally. If we were to have a live mascot, I think something like your idea would be best.
    My argument would be that "Cajun" is more of a state of mind and a way of life that cannot be represented in a concrete way. I think "Cajun" is more about the people and not the person. I fear that might get lost by trying to represent that with a single mascot.
    Live mascots, whether actually live or a representation, lend themselves to caricature.

    Been working on my genealogy for the last 15 years. On the Broussard side I go back to 1540 France.

    So Frenchie and Beyonce are cousins...who would have thunk

    "Beyoncé Giselle Knowles was born in Houston, Texas, to Celestine "Tina" Knowles (née Beyincé), a hairdresser and salon owner, and Mathew Knowles, a Xerox sales manager.[25] Beyoncé's name is a tribute to her mother's maiden name.[26] Beyoncé's younger sister Solange is also a singer and a former member of Destiny's Child. Solange and Beyoncé are the first sisters to have both had No. 1 albums.[27] Mathew is African American, while Tina is of Louisiana Creole descent (African, Native American, and French).[26][28][29][30] Through her mother, Beyoncé is a descendant of Acadian leader Joseph Broussard.[28]"

    This is the right route to our identity. BTW UNO uses a gator dressed in 18th century garb

    It is normal to want to avoid the proliferation of "greats" when discussing genealogical trees, but it seems to me "6" + great + grand + father makes 9 generations.
