First Lady Sophia Martelly Visits Haiti’s First Air Ambulance Base on Lunionsuite.com| #Lunionsuite #SophieMartelly #Haiti #Haitian #Airambulance #HaitiNews 🔴🔵

I am pleased to notice that Ayiti is spelled AYITI and not Haiti, even though AIR is in French or English and the last word seems  to be ANBILANS, being ambulance in Ayitian.

Abdul Ndadi is an animator from Ghana and a graduate from the School of Visual Arts, NY class of 2013.  He’s created an animation film entitled Orisha’s Journey (2014) which will be shown at the Hiroshima International Animation Festival in Japan (21st August 2014 - 25th August 2014).

Orisha’s Journey is a fantasy tale of a girl’s journey through the spirit world (‘Orisha’ denotes a spirit in Nigerian Yoruba cosmology), who must learn about the importance of remembering one’s roots. The film, set in a mysterious walking forest, explores the power of a child’s imagination and the deep meanings and manifestations of Africa.

The film is based on African folklore. I want to show another side to Africa besides safaris, so I explore different aspects of different countries around Africa in order to give the viewer a pan-African experience. It’s important to me that Africans feel that no matter where they’re from, they’re part of my film. In the West, there is not a lot of exposure to real Africans  — most people only go as far as The Lion King.  I want to take people farther, to create a deeper meaning. There is a word in Ghanaian: “Sankofa” – it means to return that which was lost. It is a symbol for not forgetting your roots and learning from the past. It is said that a tree without roots cannot stand. - Abdul Ndadi

Thank you so much for spreading the love! Ghana I Love You too!!!:)

Festival of the Good Death Celebrated in Cachoeira, Brazil

The Afro-Brazilian Sisterhood of the Good Death is made up of female descendants of slaves, all age 50 and over, and honours both Catholic traditions and Afro-Brazilian Candomble religious rites. The sisterhood is believed to be the oldest organization for women of African descent in the Americas. The state of Bahia received at least 1.2 million slaves from Africa and remains the most African of Brazilian states, where blacks make up around 80 percent of the population.

Haiti, a Destination Only for the Brave Ones – International Business Times

Haiti, for the meantime, is still “a place where only true travellers go; a place for the brave and the curious,” G Adventures description of the place reads.According to G Adventures’ Australia and New Zealand boss, Belinda Ward, the very first small group touring in February is comprised primarily of many Australians and New Zealanders.Ward said that Haiti has the most positive people who are working to move on from the tragedy that hit the country back in 2010.Haiti has world-class art and culture, real-time history and stunning beaches.”All our suppliers are locally-based which means our travellers can return home knowing their money will stay in the country and they have been a force for good,” Ward was quoted by the Telegraph as saying. via - International Business Times.

Tom Osbourne, an eighteen year old from Kenya, has recently been chosen as one of forty-two Echoing Green Fellows for his work as the founder and CEO of GreenChar, which makes and distributes smokeless cooking charcoal derived from agricultural waste. Through his work, he aims to reduce deforestation, eliminate lung-related diseases, and ultimately act as a model and empower young people to take charge in their communities. He is the youngest ever recipient of this fellowship in its twenty-seven year history.
Here’s to celebrating young innovators who prove you’re never too young to matter!

We need this in Ayiti. There is no efficient waste management system, the just pile up trash in the street and people cutting down trees for charcoal. This is a dekabès  system

The god who created the earth; who created the sun that gives us light.The god who holds up the ocean; who makes the thunder roar. Our GoodGod who has ears to hear. You who are hidden in the clouds; who watch us from where you are. You see all that the white has made us suffer. The white man’s god asks him to commit crimes. But the god within us wants to do good. Our god, who is so good, so just, He orders us to revenge our wrongs. It’s He who will direct our arms and bring us the victory. It’s He who will assist us. We all should throw away the image of the white men’s god who is so pitiless. Listen to the voice for liberty that sings in all our hearts.

Today in Haitian History - August 14, 1791 - Bois Caïman Vodou Ceremony. 
While historians still debate how many slaves took part of the infamous Bois Caïman Vodou Ceremony (or if it even occurred), very few would deny the emblematic value of the event. Indeed, various accounts maintain that it was precisely during this service that slaves in Northern Saint-Domingue prepared and organized for a major uprising against slave-owners. This uprising soon transformed itself into a large-scale Revolution across the country where temporary associationswere made and destroyed - a moment that we now refer to as the Haitian Revolution.
 * While the events that led to the formation of the Haitian state should not be reduced to a Vodou ceremony, Bois Caïman still, if only symbolically, marks the beginning of a new era and conscience amongst slaves in Saint-Domingue, whereby they agreed that death was better than servitude.

Did you know?
Long before Danny Glover’s recent attempts to make a film about the Haitian Revolution highlighting the role of Toussaint Louverture in the conflict, Soviet film director Sergei Eisenstein was interested in a motion picture on the Haitian leader starting African-American stage and film actor Paul Robeson in the lead role. Indeed, historian Maurice Jackson notes that ”in 1934 the famed Soviet director Sergei M. Eisenstein sent Robeson a letter inviting him to the USSR. The historian Martin Duberman notes that ‘Eisenstein had long been an admirer of black culture and was interested in making a film about Toussaint L’Ouverture, the liberator of Haiti and his successor, Christophe, a subject long dear to Robeson’s heart as well.’ Robeson arrived in Moscow on December 20, 1934. The film was to be called Black Majesty.”
While the project was eventually aborted, many historians argue that such efforts represent the undying fascinating for Toussaint Louveture in and out of the Americas.
