Our History

First discovered by Columbus, and built from the ashes of slavery, Haiti suffered many setbacks. The natives, Arawak Indians, died from disease and overwork by their Spanish overlords.

In the 1700s and 1800s, Haiti became the destination of African slaves brought in by the French to work their plantations. They were tortured and subjected to terrible bondage for more than 100 years.

In 1804, these slaves fought a succesful revolution and became the world’s first black republic.

The story is often told of the pact that was made with the devil at that time. The leader of Haiti agreed that if he gained power and was given the wealth of the country, he would then give this land to the devil.

Darkness, deceit, disease and poverty have reigned since that day.
