KREYOL LIVING WISDOM/INDIGENOUS ENVIRONMENTAL PATTERNS

In order to really stick, the reconstruction of the Haitian environment must have at its heart an understanding of Haitiís dynamic and innovative Kreyol culture, and its unique blend of African, European and American traditions, what we call the patterns of "Kreyol Living Wisdom". 

 

Through patterns like these, ordinary Haitian citizens can shape the truly sustainable regeneration of their country, empowering and leveraging the legacy of their native experience and intelligence.  The patterns of Kreyol Living Wisdom must be thoroughly documented, archived and shared, in order to fulfill their full potential.
