Naomi E. S. Griffiths

Naomi E. S. Griffiths is a Canadian historian. Historian John Grenier writes that she is "the premier scholar of the Acadians" and that her "magnum opus", From Migrant to Acadian, "on the growth of Acadian society and identity is the natural starting place for any study that touches on Acadian history."[1] She is a Distinguished Research Professor in the history department at Carleton University. From Migrant to Acadian: A North American Border People received the Lionel Groulx Prize in 2006, which recognizes the best literary work published over the last year on the history of the French in North America.[2]
