The culture of Haiti is primarily a culture that has strong West African roots, as well as strong French roots due to the French colonization of Haiti. The most beautiful things about Haiti are the Haitian People, the Language, Music, and Arts. And us the Haitian people are STRONG as rock.

Amour Creole/BET -  A 25-year-old restaurant owner was recently crowned Miss Haiti on Sunday in the Caribbean country’s capital of Port-au-Prince.
As the crowd of more than 400 people chanted her name and gave her a standing ovation, a crowned Carolyn Desert repeatedher vows: “I’m going to support the youth. I’m going to support women. I’m going to support the poor.”
Among Desert’s winning traits was her reputation for supporting artists and helping impoverished children and her wide smile, which earned her a “most photogenic” award, AP reports.
Another big moment of the night for Desert occurred during the question-and-answer portion of the pageant. According to the AP, Desert said that Haitian women have more to offer than looks: “Perseverance, courage, resilience.” Her eloquent response reportedly garnered a huge round of applause.
Desert’s closely cropped natural hair also sparked a national debate about whether competitors should embrace their natural hair instead of wearing hair extensions or straight hair like a majority of the 21 pageant participants.
As Miss Haiti 2014, Desert will compete in the Miss World competition in London in December and represent the nation on trips sponsored by Haiti’s tourism ministry.

Today in Haitian History - April 2, 1770 - Birth of Alexandre Pétion. Alexandre Sabès Pétion was a Haitian revolutionary and later president of the Republic. 
While Pétion sided with André Rigaud’s army (Toussaint Lovertrue’s major opponent) in some of the earlier battles of the Haitian Revolution, he later changed alliance to join Toussaint’s successor Jean-Jacques Dessalines. After Dessalines’ assasination in 1806, the constitutional crisis of 1807 and Haiti’s secession, Pétion became president of Southern Haiti. He died in office in 1818.
