    Haiti’s then-president Dumarsais Estimé and his wife Lucienne Heurtelou at an official ceremony in Jacmel in the early 1950s. Estimé was practically a success story in Haitian elite society. Born in astonishing poverty, he moved to Port-au-Prince from the small town of Verettes, and thanks to the financial help of an uncle on his father’s side of the family, he attended law school, and even married into one of Haiti’s most highly-esteemed families the Heurtelous.

    Vodou Ceremony (Haiti). 'Vodou is the wellspring of the Haitian character, a spiritual religion borne of the country’s African roots but which took adopted practices from both the island’s original Indian inhabitants and French colonial masters. Attending a Vodou ceremony, with its drums and sung prayers, bright imagery and often-healing nature is the best way to plug yourself in to Haiti’s subconscious.' www.lonelyplanet....

    Joseph Philippe Lemercier Laroche and his family! Joseph Phillipe was born in the city of Cap Haitien, Haiti, on May 26, 1886. He must have been quite a child prodigy, and must have been born in a very wealthy family in Haiti, because at the tender age of 15, he left his family in Haiti (accompanied by Monsegnieur Kersuzan, the archbishop of Haiti) to go study engineering in France in northern region of Picardie.
