Booknews, Inc. , August 1, 1996
Dayan (English, U. of Arizona) bypasses the conventional sources and reconstructs a vision of the French colony Dominigue, which became the republic of Haiti in 1804, by drawing on little known texts and present day practices that originated during that period. Voodoo spells and fiction join repressed histories, legal documents, religious works, secret memoirs, and letters to construct a cultural heritage that links the past with the present.

65. Windows On Haiti: Wisdom And Beauty In Haitian Vodou
Essay by Dr. MarieJos© Alcide Saint-Lot, a scholar of Haitian popular culture with graduate degrees from Brooklyn College and CUNY. This paper first presented at the American Museum of Natural history in New York.
Marie-José Alcide Saint-Lot, Ph.D. This essay was read to an Educational Panel on Spirits in the Celluloid: Haiti, Hollywood, and the Mass Media, at the American Museum of Natural History, New York City, Nov. 15, 1998, for the Exhibit of the Sacred Arts of Haitian Vodou Dr. Marie-José Alcide Saint-Lot is a scholar of Haitian popular culture. She holds an MFA in Theater from Brooklyn College and a Ph.D. from the Graduate School of Theater at CUNY.
Wisdom and Beauty in Haitian Vodou The spiritual splendor we are plunged into through this fascinating exhibit defies and calls into question the sordid and negative image imprinted on Haiti’s traditional religion. The compelling feeling of ecstasy, piety, of profound communion with the beyond which pervades these masterpieces not only lifts the mind and vibrates the soul, but also suggests that such marvelous inspiration could not have come from a destructive power. What then explains the hostility towards Vodou? The plight of Vodou in Haiti originates from the socio- economic conditions created by the colonizers to enrich themselves at the expense and to the detriment of the Negro slaves. As you know, political supremacy works hand in hand with cultural and spiritual supremacy. So, to insure their power, impose their values and establish their so-called superiority, the European rulers, from the 16th to the 19th century, made it their goal to strip the Blacks of their identity, of their humanity, undermine the African image and destroy African culture. Vodou as the religion of the slaves, the element of cohesion among them and their base of resistance, became a major target and suffered endless persecution. This persistent harassment had an impact which never totally disappeared. No wonder the media have been led to misrepresent Vodou as evil, barbaric, criminal.

Haiti Introduction Back to Top Haiti, independent republic occupying the western third of the island of Hispaniola, which it shares with the Dominican Republic, and bounded on the north by the Atlantic Ocean, on the east by the Dominican Republic, on the south by the Caribbean Sea, and on the west by the Windward Passage, which separates it from Cuba. Its area is 27,750 sq km (10,714 sq mi). Port-au-Prince is Haiti's capital and largest city. Official Name- Republic of Haiti

In arable areas, however, there are about five times more people than the average. Some 66 percent of the population lives in rural areas. Haitian Creole and French are the official languages. Creole is spoken by all Haitians and, with French, is used in drama, music, radio, television, politics, and religion. But written Creole is not widely accepted because the school system retains French as the main language of instruction. Creole is normally used in daily life, and French—mastered by perhaps 10 percent of the people—is used in more formal circumstances. Most of the vocabulary of Haitian Creole is derived from French, but its syntax is similar to that of some African languages and resembles the syntax of other creole languages of the Caribbean and the Indian Ocean.

    The Gods Must Be Sane
    Haiti, History, and the Gods
    Joan Dayan
    University of California Press
    t is no easy task to resurrect a lost history, one distorted by the prejudices and cultural affectations of the dominant society. In Haiti, History, and the Gods , Joan Dayan attempts that task, showing the glaring gaps in the official French colonial version of Haiti's history. Through literature, memoirs, religious practices, and more, she presents a complex, imaginative reenactment of Haitian life through the eyes of its silenced majority. Dayan, a professor of English at the University of Arizona, begins with the events that surrounded the brutal revolution of 1804, including the prerevolutionary Haiti of colonization and slavery. She argues that blacks were not passive victims of a cruel legacy, but agents of change who transformed their horrifying experiences into a rich, provocative, and pulsating oral and religious tradition.

    The Haitian Flag:
    For a country’s citizens, the national flag is indisputably a symbol of general pride. They would consider any offense to their flag to be an offense to their country. Beyond being an icon though, a flag’s origin can often say a lot about a nation’s social make-up or history. Haitians feel no different and even reserve a special day to honor it. That day is May 18 th In Haiti, Flag Day is a major national holiday celebrated with great fanfare on the grounds of the national palace. Flag Day is also observed by Haitians in the Diaspora. In The United States for example, teenagers whether in High School give homage to the red and blue by carrying it around with them or on their persona for at least a week. Haiti’s flag’s origin is tightly linked to a history of struggle for freedom.

    Architecture reflects the diversity of haiti's history. Rural areasare dotted with houses constructed in West African fashion.
    Haiti occupies the western third of the island named Hispaniola ("Little Spain") by Christopher Columbus, who landed there on his first voyage in 1492. Within a generation the original inhabitants, the Taino (Arawak) Indians, were nearly exterminated by Spanish colonizers, who then began importing slaves from West and Central Africa. In 1697 the French acquired the western third of the island of Hispaniola, and for the next century African labor made it the most prosperous colony in all the world. The prime source of wealth was sugar, but coffee, cotton and indigo brought riches as well. In the course of a century, the slave population swelled from a few thousand to nearly half a million. Though the island was ruled by the whip, acts of rebellion began to grow more frequent. The first act of the revolution, according to Haitian tradition, was a Vodou ceremony held by runaway slaves in 1791. In 1804 Haiti became the first nation after the USA to gain independence in the Americas when, after 13 years of fighting, the rebels drove the French out of the country. It was the only slave revolt in history ever to create a nation. The Taino Indians had called the island "Ayiti" meaning "Land of the Mountains," and so it was renamed after the revolution. 'Dessalines Ripping the White from the Flag' by Madsen Mompremier High mountains and the surrounding sea give Haiti its distinctive features. The sea was the highway first for slavery, and then more recently for escape, as thousands of "boatpeople" fled political and economic oppression in small crafts. 200 years ago, abundantly forested mountains hid runaway slaves called Maroons. Today the mountains shelter small villages and farms for corn and coffee. But they are no longer lush, as the woods are being transformed into bags of charcoal, the only fuel source for people flooding the cities.

    Haiti's History

    The earliest known inhabitants of Haiti reached the island about 2600 BC, using huge dugout canoes that allowed them to ride the current from South America and the southern tip of the Lesser Antilles north and west into the Greater Antilles. They were primarily nomadic hunter-gatherers who used stone tools and who left little behind for archaeologists to examine. A second group, often referred to as the Salanoids or ancient Arawaks, reached Hispaniola about 250 BC. The group, easily traced because of their distinctive ceramics, spread throughout the Antilles. A third migration, from Venezuela, swept through the Antilles about 2000 years ago, and by AD 700 occupied Haiti and most of the surrounding islands. This society's complex hierarchical structure allowed for specialization in fishing, worship, art and farming Cassava and sweet potato. They called themselves the Taino (friendly people), and an estimated 400,000 of them lived on Hispanola when Italian adventurer Christopher Columbus got off the ship to greet them. Folks on another island had told Columbus that there was gold to be found there, and the anxious Italian set off in the night to find it, accidently dashing the Santa María to pieces on one of Hispaniola's famed coral reefs. The Tainos sent boats to rescue the Spanish sailors, and Columbus decided that it was God's will (it was Christmas) that the shipless crew set up a a fort, La Villa de Navidad, on the site of present-day Cap-Haïtien. Although most Tainos died during the next 25 years at the hands of Spanish slave drivers (or Spanish viruses), their contributions to the world - barbecue, tobacco, canoe and hammock are all Taino words - live on.
