Haitian American Caucus-US - Celebrating Haitian Heritage Month

 

Haitian Heritage Month
Selebre Mwa Eritaj Ayisyen
Bonjou/ Greetings!

For more than 200 years, Haiti's historic and cultural contributions have been revolutionary. From the slave revolt to our enriching food and music, we are the descendants of a nation with a global impact. 

Our heritage, or ERITAJ, not only defines who we are but also illustrates what we can achieve as one. Flag Day is two weeks away, but we are celebrating the beauty and vibrancy of Haiti all month long. 

This year, we are excited to reconnect to our roots with a fully immersive experience that will excite our senses. Join us in welcoming our surrounding community to take the journey home to the mountainous landscape where it all began.
