Wrong. I am a native of south Louisiana (and of French Ancestry).
A long time ago, the word "Creole" was used to refer to a person
of mixed-color. Now it describes the mixture of the many cultures and
influences of the area (African, Carribbean, Spanish, French).
You'll have a better chance of finding "Creole" cuisine New Orleans than
in the country.
The Cajun culture is very much a rural one, based on farming, ranching and
fishing. There are very few true Cajuns who live in the cities.
