Is “yea” after a sentence in Cajun the equivalent of “eh” after a sentence in Canadian?
How many of y’all use the word “yea” after a sentence due to your Cajun upbringing.

And if so, does that put us on the same level as those across-the-border weirdos?

It seems more British to me. At least I hear it more in British shows.

I had worked with a french woman and she would end a sentence with "eh" where I thought some people in Louisiana would have used a "huh".

Ranks right up there with "Ah, Mais, no"

That’s another one. But I’m specifically referring to the affirmation “yea”

Like,

“Those people at the store are some crooks, yea”

I also notice a rising then falling inflection with the crescendo around the word ‘crooks.’ Also a step further Cajun would also say dude.
E.g. “Those people at the store are some CROOKS ya dude”

It's hot out here, yea.

I used to say it a lot until I moved out of Louisiana and was questioned about it so much.

Holy shit…I think you just hit the nail on the head.

What if it existed when they were still in Canada and it morphed down here with the Acadians?”

That’s also a French French saying, not just Cajun. Should be on my grandmother’s tombstone.

It’s only Cajun if a whistle comes out of your mouth after a word that ends in S.

It’s a direct French to English translation. In French, you would use “yes” at the end of a sentence instead of the beginning

It depends.

If you say that as a positive, yeh.

But mean it as an ain’t, non.

Canadians use "eh" like the Brits use "yeah". It's to turn a statement into a question.

That guy was fat, yeah (eh)?

Cajuns use it for emphasis

That dude was fat yeah!
