In Haiti, a wide array of religious groups coexist in harmony. Amongst all these religions, Vaudou carries the most notoriety, and has been instrumental in shaping Haitian culture. Vaudou guided the Haitian people through 300 years of slavery, and played an important role in the revolution that followed the Bwa Kayiman ceremony. Today, Vaudou  preserves the deep connection that exists between present-day Haiti and various African cultures. Dr. Jean Fils-Aimé, Prof. Jean-Claude Exulien, and Ms. Leonie Hermantin will discuss how Vaudou shaped Haitian society, and explain why it remains a popular religion today. (simultaneous interpretation in English when appropriate)
