The Haitian American Historical Society maintains the truth and accuracy of historical events pertaining to Haitians and people of Haitian descent. The goal of HAHS is to teach current and future generations to appreciate the role and contributions of Haitians to both American society and other parts of the world. This is especially important for the upcoming generations of Haitian decent who are on the verge of losing their identity and connection to Haiti.


The truthful knowledge of historical facts always highlights the basis for the better understanding among people and/or communities who have lived the same experience or have shared separately similar account of past glory and suffering. Haitian American Historical Society (HAHS) intends to promote understanding and positive cooperation of all groups of African descent towards a better appreciation of their common heritage.


HAHS seeks to show the accomplishment of the historical stature of Haitians and Blacks through various means of dissemination of knowledge: educate the public and the world through HAHS representatives’ networking with other organizations, participation and sponsorship in forums for all kinds of audiences and school-based programs and projects. HAHS seeks to promote diversity of culture and history through these programs and projects and bring together persons of different ethnic backgrounds for interchange.
