About this title

Synopsis:

WELCOME! Anna Pierre may be currently living in the United States, but her heart still belongs to her motherland, the Republic of Haiti in the Caribbean. Third in line of nine siblings, her life’s history has been as diverse as her country’s. From singer/songwriter (most of her music is peppered with the flavoring of the island), to nurse, caretaker, and humanitarian -- and now author -- she has never been one to sit on her laurels and allow life to come to her. You Know You’re Haitian If... is a comprehensive recounting of Haiti’s vibrant, often chaotic history that goes as far back Christopher Columbus, who in 1492 stumbled upon the island during his trip to redeem himself in the eyes of the King and Queen of Spain. And the Haitian Revolution -- a slave uprising that lasted from 1791 to 1804 when Haiti gained its independence by defeating the French at the Battle of Vertières. Within these covers are eyebrow-raising narratives about the ancient practice of Voodoo; photos and historical information about landmarks, artwork and ethnic cuisine; the evolution and characteristics of Haitian men and women; and many local proverbs such as nan pwen lapriyè ki pa gen amen (there is no prayer without amen). You Know You’re Haitian If... contains Anna’s voice speaking pure, unconditional love for her beloved homeland. “This is my journey and my desire to share my amazing country with the world. History is set in stone and I cannot rewrite it. But I can share it with you to the best of my ability and with great respect for my people.” Zanmi-m yo mwen di nou mèsi (thank you dear friends) ~Anna Pierre “You Know You’re Haitian If... was written by my delightful client, Anna Pierre. I couldn't be more honored to be a part of her journey to bring this colorful work about her people to light.” ~ Mary Jo Stresky (editing and cover design), The Write MoJo Literary Services, Sheridan, WY USA
