What is Haiti known for?

small black

''' (''Corvus palmarum'') is a relatively small black bird in the crow family (Corvidae) that occurs mostly on the large Caribbean island of Hispaniola, itself divided into the two countries of Dominican Republic and Haiti. It was formerly quite frequent on Cuba but has become severely reduced in number and may be almost extinct there. This form is slightly smaller and is usually separated as a sub-species called ''Corvus palmarum minutus''. Both forms are usually now given the respective common names of '''Hispaniolan Palm Crow''' and '''Cuban Palm Crow''' to distinguish them. However, in May, revolutionary disorders broke out in the Dominican Republic; and ''Walke'' was dispatched to support the troops and marines (United States Marine Corps) landed there to restore order (United States occupation of the Dominican Republic). From 6 May-19 June, she cruised along the coast of Hispaniola, leaving the area periodically for fuel or provisions at Ponce, Puerto Rico, or at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. After a brief visit to Haiti, the republic occupying the western end of Hispaniola, ''Walke'' returned to Key West on 19 June. On 21 July, she arrived at the Norfolk Navy Yard to begin an eight-month overhaul. It includes more than 20 nations: Mexico in North America; Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama in Central America; Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay, Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay in South America; Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Puerto Rico in the Caribbean —in summary, Hispanic America, Brazil, and Haiti. Spanish (Spanish language) and Portuguese (Portuguese language) are the predominant languages of Latin America. Portuguese (Portuguese language) is spoken only in Brazil, the biggest and most populous country in the region. Spanish (Spanish language) is the official language of most of the rest of the countries on the Latin American mainland, as well as in Puerto Rico (where it is co-official with English), Cuba and the Dominican Republic. French (French language) is spoken in some Caribbean islands, including Guadeloupe, Martinique, and Haiti, as well as in the overseas departments of French Guiana (South America). Dutch (Dutch language) is the official language of some Caribbean islands and in Suriname on the continent; however, as Dutch is a Germanic language (Germanic languages), these territories are not considered part of Latin America. In several nations, especially in the Caribbean region, creole languages are spoken. The most widely spoken creole language in the Caribbean and Latin America in general is Haitian Creole, the predominant language of Haiti; it is derived primarily from French and certain West African tongues with some Amerindian and Spanish influences as well. Creole languages of mainland Latin America, similarly, are derived from European languages and various African tongues. By the 16th century, fully functioning Jewish communities had organised in Brazil, Suriname, Curaçao, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Barbados. In addition, there were unorganised communities of Jews in the Spanish and Portuguese territories, where the Inquisition was active, including Cuba, Puerto Rico and Mexico, however, these Jews generally concealed their identity from the authorities. By the mid-17th century, the largest Jewish communities in the Western Hemisphere were located in Suriname and Brazil. Several Jewish communities in the Caribbean, Central and South America flourished, particularly in those areas under Dutch and English control. Today, there are up to 500,000 Jews living in Latin America, http: www.policyarchive.org handle 10207 bitstreams 17111.pdf http: en.wikipedia.org wiki Jewish_population most of whom live in Argentina and Brazil.

The program is based around one of the largest systematic collections of pre-Columbian artifacts in North America. What the collection lacks in size is compensated for by its diversity. The collection contains systematic collections from sites on the islands of Antigua, Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, Curaçao, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Guyana

It achieved remarkable success treating infectious diseases at low cost, spending $150 to $200 to cure tuberculosis patients in their homes, treatment that would have cost $15,000 to $20,000 in a U.S. hospital.

(United States) 0 Early history The band was formed in 1986 under the name of '''A-180''' by Mark Stuart (Mark Stuart (musician)), Barry Blair, Will McGinniss, David Stuart, and Phil Vaughan, who all attended Kentucky Christian University. The next year, the band temporarily disbanded when Mark went to Haiti for a semester. Upon Mark's return to Kentucky, the band reformed with Ron Gibson on drums. They became a popular local band, booked by the school nearly every weekend; traveling as far west as Texas, north to Chicago, south to Florida. The band did over 100 shows during this time and recorded two independent releases under the name A-180. The first was ''You Turn'' in 1989 and ''Reaper's Train'' in 1990. Reaper's Train featured the original version of the song "DC-10", also found on the first Audio Adrenaline release. On September 5, 2006, the band released ''Hands & Feet: Inspiring Stories and Firsthand Accounts of God Changing Lives'', with Regal Books. It takes the reader on a journey to Haiti with the band as they build houses for the children there. The reader also meets Drex and Jo Stuart, the parents of frontman Mark Stuart. The book gives an explanation of life in one of the poorest nations on earth. It also tells of the band's building of The Hands and Feet Project (an orphanage for poor, hungry children).

; with Jesse Jackson. While Newman was initially dismissive of Jackson, Fulani had praised the popular activist during his 1984 Presidential run. After Jackson founded his Rainbow Coalition (Rainbow PUSH Coalition) group, Newman and Fulani created the Rainbow Alliance, which at first lobbied for the benefit of small political parties. It later changed its name to the Rainbow Lobby and expanded its lobby to include issues of opposing U.S.-backed Joseph Mobutu's dictatorship in Zaire and the Haitian dictatorship of Prosper Avril. When asked about his political relationship to Fulani in the press Jackson said that there was no relationship at all. The Rainbow Lobby continued its lobbying activities into the early 1990s, while Fulani repeatedly rebuked Jackson for his support of the Democratic Party. Commissioned travel and writing Early in 1934 the Bell Syndicate Newspapers contracted with newspapers throughout the United States, beginning with the ''Boston Globe'', to publish weekly feature stories prepared by Halliburton. Of about one thousand words each with pictures, ultimately fifty stories resulted. Among these were stories on the Seri (Seri people) Indians of Southern California; Fort Jefferson, where Dr. Samuel Mudd, convicted of conspiracy in the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, was imprisoned; Admiral Richmond Pearson Hobson, who deliberately sunk his own ship (USS Merrimac (1898)) during the Spanish-American War, and the Battle of Santiago de Cuba a month later; Henri Christophe and the Citadelle Laferrière in Haiti; Christopher Columbus, Lord Byron, "The Girl from Martinique Who Wrecked Napoleon". Paid well, Halliburton travelled extensively to fulfill his end of the deal: to Cuba, Haiti, Martinique, to Miami, Washington, D. C. (to do research at the Library of Congress), to New York, to Europe, and ultimately to Russia. At the height of his popularity and self-fulfillment, he appeared on radio, attended celebrity parties (including one at the home of novelist Kathleen Norris who, like Halliburton, had stories regularly featured in the newspapers), and, after the purchase of a used Ford roadster, explored the heartland of California and the beauties of the Lake Tahoe area. Other commissions followed: United Artists, producing a movie about Benvenuto Cellini (Benvenuto Cellini (opera)), asked him to do a story on the Renaissance artist's love life (Cellini#Personal_relationships). The lectures continued. Halliburton even turned down "job" offers, one of which was for the considerable sum of $500 a week, for 26 weeks, from a radio company "to speak on a beer program". Meanwhile, besides the ''Memphis Commercial Appeal'', newspapers in Milwaukee, Kansas City, Columbus, and Toronto published his syndicated stories. At the end of the year, he was again in Europe to commence his dream of emulating Hannibal and crossing the Alps on an elephant, one chosen for the task from a Paris zoo and given the name "Miss Dalrymple." The following year Bobbs-Merrill published Halliburton's ''Seven League Boots'', filled with his latest adventures and arguably the last of the great travel works of the classic period. See ''Richard Halliburton - His Story of His Life's Adventure As Told in Letters to His Mother and Father'' (Bobbs-Merrill, 1940), pp. 349-355, quoted p. 350. "Commissioned travel and writing" submitted by Gerry Max The Ridgway's Hawk's original breeding range included Haiti and the Dominican Republic (which make up the island of Hispaniola) and some of the adjacent isles and keys.

'''Haiti''' (

Haiti's regional, historical, and ethno-linguistic position is unique for several reasons. Originally inhabited by the indigenous Taíno people, the island was first discovered by Christopher Columbus during his first voyage across the Atlantic in 1492. When Columbus first landed in Haiti (western Hispaniola), he had thought he had found India or Asia. His flagship, the ''Santa Maria (Santa Maria (ship))'', sank after running aground on 25 December in the north coast of present-day Haiti.

Gaining its independence in 1804, Haiti was the first independent nation (nation-state) of Latin America and the Caribbean, the second republic successful in a war of independence against a European colonial power in the Americas, the only nation in the western hemisphere to have defeated three European superpowers (Britain (United Kingdom), France (Kingdom of France), and Spain (Imperial Spain)), and the only nation in the world established as a result of a successful slave revolt.

With 10.4 million people, Haiti is the most populous full member-state of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). The country is also a member of the Latin Union. In 2012, Haiti announced its intention to seek associate membership status in the African Union. It has the lowest Human Development Index (List of countries by Human Development Index) in the Americas. Political violence has occurred regularly throughout its history (History of Haiti), leading to government instability. Most recently, in February 2004, a ''coup d'état (2004 Haitian coup d'état)'' originating in the north of the country forced the resignation and exile of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. A provisional government took control with security provided by the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH). Michel Martelly, the current president, was elected in the 2011 general election (Haitian general election, 2011).
