Haiti: International Creole Day 2009


There have been many events going on in Haiti to celebrate La Quinzaine de la Créolophonie, two weeks of cultural activities around the theme “Lang nou ak nou, Kreyòl pou Kreyòl,” activities that highlight Creole. Conferences, an art exhibition, and an haute couture show are being held at the State University of Haiti in Port-au-Prince. The State University of Haiti Press is also displaying recently published titles.

Artists, university students, and students from the fashion schools in the country have enjoyed the past few days of cultural events commemorating Creole as a language for all. The activities will continue until Wednesday, October 28, 2009, International Creole Day [Journée internationale du Créole].

  1. This memo is for all speaking Creole counties in the world.

    Black people consider themselves for subhuman, is not white people who implanted inferiority in black, it is Negro-Gene-Centric which has grown with in black people, brain and blood and make them don’t pride of themselves. Black doesn’t appreciate anything that has been developing by their genetic mind. Black copy everything from Europeans, for black to be feel human, they must speak Europeans languages. They blame white people, whenever, if white is not bit they will not swallow. Every nation which speaks Creole refuses to express themselves in Creole because Creole is mostly black’s language.

    Black people disgrace themselves, they say Creole is a dialect not a language, but every language based on dialect. If America asks them which language is America’s language, anyone would be able to answer the question. Let me answer the question, they might say Awaken American’s Indigenous Indian, it could be true, not sure, the real America and the other parts in the world according to colonization is Creole, because this language took birth in America during Europeans colonies time. Creole is formed in the presence of colonizers; remember Spanish, English, French and Portuguese came from Europe.

    Negro-Gene-Centric is my own compound word; it has a great difference from dictionary and definition how people use it.
