"Germany, a rising power in the late nineteenth century began a small but aggressive commerce in the Caribbean republics. Banking was an important adjunct to this business and four firms represented German trade in Haiti. In 1897 one Emil Luders, a businessman with a German father and a Haitian mother, was arrested following an altercation with Port-au-Prince police. Weeks after Luders’ release and departure for Germany, the German navy sent warships to Port-au-Prince and threatened to bombard the port unless all charges against Luders were dropped and restitution made to him.

 This example of gunboat diplomacy was encouraged by the United States, whose minister-resident pressured the Haitian government to give in to German demands. Over the course of the next twenty years, however, the Americans increasingly saw Germany as a commercial and political rival in Haiti, and fear of German influence served as a major justification for the U.S. occupation of 1915-1934.

As for Luders, his reliance on German protection was not atypical of wealthy Haitians of the period, many of whom sought and received foreign citizenship or pursued marriage with aliens in order to evade taxation, conscription, or other strictures imposed by Haitian authorities. The early 1900s witnessed the rapid expansion of the German merchant marine and navy as the Hamburg American Line increased its Caribbean operations and the navy by 1907 outstripped that of the United States in the battleship and cruiser categories. German merchant firms enjoyed subvention from Berlin and were able to supply Haitian consumers with expensive knockoffs of popular European products.” #haiti #ayiti #germany #usa #teamhaiti

"On July 7, 1801.. A new constitution, drafted by a committee appointed by Toussaint L’Ouverture, went into effect and declared independence of Hispaniola. The constitution made him governor general for life with near absolute powers. L’Ouverture seized power in Haiti from French control." #knowyourhistory #knowthyself #sakpasse #caribbean #phoenixrising #Africa #slavery #freedom #revolutionary #zoedup #zoe #teamzoe #haitiansbelike #teamhaiti #teamayiti #HaitianPhoenix #wealth #love #me #ayibobo #Haiti #ayiti #blackhistory

  10. DJ Sabine Blaizin Talks The Roots Of Haiti’s Deep House Movement

    DJ Sabine Blaizin by Carlos Bell Photography

    The story of Haiti is a story of a people who refused to be enslaved, rising up against their oppressors and creating the first free black republic in the New World– the only nation in the world established as a result of a successful slave revolt. Ostracized and isolated by the West because of this, Haiti kept a strong connection to its African roots, maintaining traditions, rhythms and dances of more than 21 plus different African ethnicities– traditions which in some cases have faded on the continent itself. Vodou, while influenced by the original Taino people and French colonizers, is nonetheless a direct path back to Haiti’s African ancestors. Indeed the sights, smells and music on the island are the closest a Brooklynite could get to Africa in a three hour plane ride.

    Against this backdrop a new movement is gaining momentum. The island is vibrating to the new sound of Haitian House, a deep and tantalizing brew of modern production methods set over the ancient and unmistakable call of the drum.
    Sabine Blaizin is a New York based DJ, promoter, community activist, who some on NYC’s house music scene may know from her brand Oyasound, which gives homage to the ancestors and promotes warrior women in music with a host of great events and excellent Afro Deep House mixes.
