    Default Haiti and Haitians 🇭🇹



    Haiti (pronounced /ˈheɪtiː/; French Hati, pronounced: [a.iti]; Haitian Creole: Ayiti), officially the Republic of Haiti (Rpublique d'Hati ; Repiblik Ayiti), is a Creole- and French-speaking Caribbean country. Along with the Dominican Republic, it occupies the island of Hispaniola, in the Greater Antillean archipelago. Ayiti (Land of high mountains) was the indigenous Tano or Amerindian name for the mountainous western side of the island. The country's highest point is Pic la Selle, at 2,680 metres (8,793 ft). The total area of Haiti is 27,750 square kilometres (10,714 sq mi) and its capital is Port-au-Prince.

    Haiti's regional, historical, and ethnolinguistic position is unique for several reasons. It was the first independent nation in Latin America, the first post-colonial independent Black-led nation in the world, and the only nation whose independence was gained as part of a successful slave rebellion. Despite having common cultural links with its Hispano-Caribbean neighbors, Haiti is the only predominantly Francophone independent nation in the Americas, and one of only two (along with Canada) which designate French as an official language; the other French-speaking countries are all overseas dpartements or collectivits of France.

    William Edward Burghardt Du Bois (pronounced /duːˈbɔɪs/ doo-BOYSS[1]) (February 23, 1868 – August 27, 1963) was an American civil rights activist, Pan-Africanist, sociologist, historian, author, and editor. At the age of 95, in 1963, he became a naturalized citizen of Ghana.

    Family history

    William Edward Burghardt Du Bois was born on February 23, 1868, in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, to Alfred Du Bois and Mary Silvina Burghardt Du Bois. He grew up in Great Barrington, a predominately Anglo American town. Mary Silvina Burghardt's family was part of the very small free black population of Great Barrington, having long owned land in the state. Their family descended from Dutch and African ancestors, including Tom, a West African-born man who served as a private for Captain John Spoor's company in 1780, a service which likely won him his freedom. According to Du Bois, several of his maternal ancestors were notably involved in regional history.

    Alfred Du Bois, from Haiti, was of French Huguenot and African descent. His grandfather was Dr. James Du Bois of Poughkeepsie, New York. Dr. Du Bois's family was rewarded extensive lands in the Bahamas for its support of King George III during the American Revolution. On Long Cay, Bahamas, James Du Bois fathered several children with slave mistresses. When he returned to New York in 1812, James brought with him John and Alexander, two of his sons, to be educated in Connecticut. After James Du Bois died, his black sons were disowned by his family and forced to give up schooling for work. Alexander became a merchant in New Haven and married Sarah Marsh Lewis, with whom he had several children. In the 1830s Alexander went to Haiti to try to salvage his inheritance. His son Alfred was born there in about 1833. Alexander returned to New Haven without the boy and his mother.

    First black republic, no one's gonna take that away!



    Most sources say population is around 95% black and remaining part mostly mulattos and very small numbers of whites. Supposedly Haiti has preserved it's african heritage the most in the new world, not only culturally (voodoo!) but also genetically. Haiti is known for having a large proportion of "african looking" people as opposed to "new world black looking" people.

    The genetic structure of populations from Haiti and Jamaica reflect divergent demographic histories

    Abstract
    The West Indies represent an amalgamation of African, European and in some cases, East Asian sources, but the contributions from each ethnic group remain relatively unexplored from a genetic perspective. In the present study, we report, for the first time, allelic frequency data across the complete set of 15 autosomal STR loci for general collections from Haiti and Jamaica, which were subsequently used to examine the genetic diversity present in each island population. Our results indicate that although both Haiti and Jamaica display genetic affinities with the continental African collections, a stronger African signal is detected in Haiti than in Jamaica. Although only minimal contributions from non-African sources were observed in Haiti, Jamaica displays genetic input from both European and East Asian sources, an admixture profile similar to other New World collections of African descent analyzed in this report.
    http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/j...85407/abstract

    African origins for Haitians are mostly located within Congo area and Benin/Togo, although some of the earliest slaves imported in Haiti (by then spanish colonizers) came from Senegambia.

    In Saint Domingue, despite the multiplicity of African ethnicities represented among its slave population, certain particular African groups were disproportionately numerous. Although slaves were drawn from all regions of Africa, from Senegambia to Mozambique, two regions of supply were overwhelmingly predominant: West-Central Africa (Angola) and the Slave Coast (Bight of Benin). Over the entire period from the 1720s to the 1790s, West-Central Africa supplied nearly half (45%) of the slaves whose ethnicities are recorded, the Bight of Benin over a quarter (28%). Within each of these two regions, moreover, a particular ethnicity of slaves predominated: those shipped from West-Central Africa were overwhelmingly Congo; while of those shipped from the Bight of Benin, around half (52%) came from Gbe-speaking groups, generally called Radas (or Aradas). This numerical dominance of Congos and Radas is evidently reflected in the structure of the vaudou religion, whose principal deities are organized into the two complementary/opposed groups called Rada and Petro, of which the latter seem to be mainly of Congo origin.
    This quote is from a really interesting paper on the African background to the slave insurrection in Saint-Domingue.


    Looking at the pictures i think centralafrican/bantuid influence is indeed dominant. Some non-african admixture can still be spotted.













































    Some examples of "new world black looking" haitians













    Some remaining amerindian influence (arawak) ?








    this kid looks straight up angolan imo
