This community is built for Haitians, Haitian Ex-Patriates, Haitian-Americans, Dominicans, Dominican-Americans, and other Afro-Caribbean Peoples. The focus of the community is primarily for those of us who are descendents from this region, but of course others are welcome to join!
Happy Bi-Centennial to Haiti, the World's First Free Black Republic: January 1, 2004
This Community is NOT for: the trivialization of voodoo/vodou/vodoun. There are too many LJ communities that have associated 'Voodoo' with Wicca/Witchcraft/Neo-Paganism/Satanism. This community condemns the fetishization of Voodoo/Vodou and the trivialization of Haitian Peoples into such restrictive and oppressive categories. Any users found making irresponsible comments regarding voodoo will be banned.
