Home Forums DNPs in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) May is Haitian Heritage Month

Haitian Heritage Month is an expansion of Haitian Flag Day which is celebrated on May 18th. The purpose is threefold: to (1) raise awareness and understanding of Haitian culture and traditions, (2) strengthen the self-esteem and ethnic pride of Haitian and Haitian American youth, and (3) celebrate Haitian achievements across the globe. It was first celebrated in Boston in 1998. Haitian culture is a blend of Taino and African traditions, mixed with European elements due to French colonization.
