The Haitian Institute is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting an
understanding and appreciation of Haitian culture and society. In
fulfilling this mission, the Haitian institute offers a variety of programs
including seminars, lectures, book discussions, films and art exhibits.
Founded in 1987 in Washington, DC, the Haitian Institute has held the torch
of Haitian intellectualism high. It has been the conscience of the
community, the keeper of its memory and the source of inspiration for many.
For those unfamiliar with Haiti's rich traditions, the Institute's many
programs provide a glimpse into the bounty that is Haiti's culture.
