Taíno, West African, French.
Three women of three different worlds - worlds that collide creating conflict, resolution, and a birth of a new nation.
This photo series for the second project is a reflection of my country's past and origin. Before Haiti became Haiti, its inhabitants of the entire island of Hispaniola (Haiti and Dominican Republic) were primarily the Taíno. After the country was colonized by the French, West Africans were traded and bought over to Haiti as slaves. These three women represent the Taíno, West African, and French women as well as a representation of their bondage during the formation and birth of Haiti.
