Homage to Madan Saras, Potomitan, Pillars of Haiti's economy

All Parents Want Their Kids to Do Well in Life. They want them to succeed. Just like the migratory birds of Haiti that travel far and beyond to find foods to bring back to their nest, female Haitian merchants commonly known as Madan Sara are the main distributors of crops and the true link between farmers in the provinces and consumers in the major cities and capital, Port-au-Prince. If Madan Sara do not up to the mountains to establish their network with the food producers, farmers, and transporters, then the city dwellers will not find anything to eat. Yet, the educated consumers of the cities do not respect them and tend to look down on them.

Book Review

"The Colors of Haiti – Koulè Ayiti – Los Colores de Haití" is a reading ebook about the beautiful colors of all things Haitian. It's about the beautiful color of most Haitians as in 'grimo, grimèl and marabou,' the color of the sky and the ocean, the bright colors of Tap Tap, taxis, and buses. It's about the color of Haitian Carnival, rara, popular bands, and Jalouzi neighborhood. Most importantly, it's about the bright colors that Haitians enjoy wearing, the colors of 'pèpè' or used clothes for sale in all Haitian markets. It's also about the colors of the treeless mountains that are being grilled by the Caribbean sun. Trees are like hats that cover the head of the mountain. They are like teeth in the mouth of the country.

"The Colors of Haiti – Koulè Ayiti – Los Colores de Haití" is an ebook that encourages Haitians to plant fruit trees and all the great trees that made the country the pearl of the Antilles.

This bestselling Alphabetical Haitian Creole Dictionary was composed and prepared by Haitian American linguist Jean Boger Laferrière who started studying at Sorbonne University in Paris, France. He completed his higher studies at Anglia Ruskin University and Open University.
