Haitian Diaspora Federation Chapters in Latin America and the Caribbean

Haitian migration is by far one of the oldest in Latin American and Caribbean. While the migration wave toward Cuba died down in the 1960s, the numbers have continued to grow in the  Dominican Republic. The Latin American and Caribbean countries with noticeable quantities of Haitians are  Dominican Republic, Cuba, Bahamas, Brazil, Chile, Venezuela, and a very few in Ecuador, Panama, and Jamaica.   The territories — Martinique, Guadeloupe,  St Martin, and  French Guyana — of France, the territories — Turks and Caicos and Cayman Islands — of the United Kingdom,  and the territories — Aruba, Curaçao, St Marteen — of the Kingdom of Netherlands,  have been permanent fixtures of Haitian migration dating as far back as the early years of the Twentieth Century. For strategic and geopolitical reasons, the territories shall be subchapters of their  European motherlands. 

However, throughout the region, Haitian migration gathers immense resistance with no end in sight.  In a display of hysteria to feed the base of multiple factions, “The Haitians are coming,” make headlines in Guyana, Cayman Islands, Puerto Rico and of late The Bahamas in the aftermath of hurricane Dorian. 

In Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) Haitians prominently migrated  to five (5) counties, with small pockets in Jamaica.  However large numbers are in LAC territories of the US. –  Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands  –  of the United Kingdom – Turks and Caicos and Cayman Islands – of the kingdom of Netherlands – Aruba and Curaçao — and of France – Guadeloupe, Martinique, French Guyana and St Martin. For geopolitical reasons, these sub-federations shall be under the Federations of the indexed countries. To highlight the diaspora’s departing point — brain drain — and welcome the former diaspora’s return – brain regain – the Haitian diaspora Federation of Haiti  is featured first.
