Haitian Creole Books of Hope, The Bible and Christianity are More Powerful and Stronger Than Haiti and New Orleans Voodoo and Vampires Combined


Here is a review of this book: "Allelluia Haitian Chants of Hope and Faith: Praise to Thee, O Lord, King of Eternal Glory... is a listing of the most requested songs or hymns on ChandesperansOnline.com. It is the web site users' and authors' selections of their favorite hymns from the famous Chants d'esperance Francais et Creoles Haitiens. The authors of this release grew up singing these songs in the church and parochial schools they attended. They are songs such as "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" -"Quel Ami Fidele et Tendre Nous Avons en Jesus-Christ," "Quel Repos, Quel Repos" - "It is Well, It is Well...," etc. This book is a personal affair for the authors as they share their love of singing in French and Haitian creole..."




Sing along with Haitian Children! Canten con los chicos Haitianos. This compilation is for those who want to sing along with Haitian Children at christian venues, outreach mission trips, schools, churches and elsewhere. Some of the songs are short choruses...

Start playing some of these choruses on your guitar or piano and the Haitian children will follow you. They will sing with you. All throughout the country, these songs are are sung in most churches or revival centers.

These are songs I used to sing with the children of my Sunday school class. L'ecole du Dimanche or Sunday school can be a lot of fun with the right selection of songs.


Just in case you are interested in having more songs, here is a new book of choruses, short Haitian hymns, Lullaby and Play songs published on this link:

Bouki is Tired of Being the Underdog: Malis Has the Last Laugh

"Bouki and Malis Turned Boat People - Bouki ak Malis Pran Kanntè"

Authors, Charles J. Desmangles and Kevin Levin, have done a great job writing this novella in Haitian Creole, Spanish, and English. Bouki and Malis Turned Boat People:Bouki ak Malis Pran Kanntè. It is based on the plasticity and richness of the Haitian folklore. Two of the most recognizable characters of Haitian folktales play a central role in this story.

Read a Free Sample of "Bouki and Malis Turned Boat People....

In this novella, the authors show Bouki's desperation and push factors contributing to his agreement with a sleek, sophisticated local criminal and people smuggler / trafficker known as 'Captain Katastwòf Natirèl.' Bouki was deep in debts because he wanted to maintain a lifestyle he could not afford on the meager catches of a fisherman. Caught and deported several times by U.S. Border and Coast Guard, Captain Katastwòf Natirèl (Captain Natural Catastrophe) was on a black list. Bouki thought he was smart enough to pull this trip on his own. He refused to be known as the butt of his brother's jokes, a simpleton, a fool. He did not want Malis, his intellectual brother, to know about the details of that trip. All the while, Malis never hesitated to put him down and make him realize that he needed his expertise, language skills, and critical thinking.

Charles J. Desmangles and Kevin Levin interweave elements of the Haitian culture in this remarkable Haitian Creole, Spanish, English novella. Things must have been really harsh in Haiti if these two famous characters of the Haitian folklore finally decide to leave the country on a perilous raft to cross illegally to the U.S. shores. When faced with an upcoming storm, Captain Katastwòf Natirèl led his crew to Santiago, Cuba to seek temporary refuge. He forced everybody to learn Spanish in order to pass for Cuban refugees. Will Booki, Malis and Captain Katastwòf Natirèl make it to the dry grounds of Florida?

This story is set against the backdrop of Haiti's devastated agriculture, political upheavals, insecurity, presence of UN troops or Minustah, series of natural disasters such as hurricanes and 2010 earthquake, barren lands and tree-less mountaintops causing widspread floodings, destroyed ecology, infrastructures and educational institutions with a local population that depends more and more on imported goods and used clothes euphemistically known as 'pèpè.'

In this novella, the authors also implicate and relate the complicity of the catholic church whose priest, Father Francois, refuses to use Haitian Creole and French in his mass in his dogged efforts to cater to a dwindling but rich and powerful group of Latin language enthusiasts, les Bourgeois Commercants Mulattres (native Haitians of Syrian, Lebanese and.. descent). He did not heed Professor Malis' advice to start leading mass in Creole just like the Voodoo priests and protestant churches do all over the country with great success. What's worse is that Father Francois never said a word or raisee his stubby pinky finger against the clandestine smuggling and chaperoning of Haitian children who took these rickety boats to get reunited with their parents in Miami. Sister Marie Lafontant made her money chaperoning children and paid the priest under the table without counting her generous tithes to the church.

"Bouki and Malis Turned Boat People - Bouki ak Malis Pran Kanntè" is a book that will make you laugh and cry in the same sentence or paragraph. This book should be a required reading for anybody who wants to understand Haiti and the 'Boat People' phenomenon. Definitely, it should be required reading for any NGO, tourist, international workers in Haiti. It should be a required reading for any sociology students. This novella is edited by Prof. Joseph J. Charles

Now you can find out whether Bouki shows any signs of intelligence here:

"Excerpt from "Bouki and Malis Turned Boat People.."

“They said that I am supposed to pass the shark test too,” Bouki said to Malis.

“What are you talking about?” Malis asked.

“I was told that it is a test developed by the American authorities to separate Cubans from Haitians. They say that sharks like Haitians’ blood and flesh. They eat Haitian migrants whose boats capsize in high seas between Haiti and Bahamas. “

“Come on, Bouki, think straight. Respect yourself. It looks like you are losing your consciousness, you are coming in and out of consciousness. It appears that the waves of the sea and the crossing made you lose your mind. Americans are not like that! Where can they find these sharks?”

“Malis, I am not crazy. You always think I am crazy!”

“Crazy people hold this kind of talk!”

“I am a fisherman, but I am afraid of sharks. Their teeth are like saws.”

“Hello Bouki, you are no longer on the ocean now. You are on firm U.S. soil!”

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

Professor Orosco and Malis continued to teach Spanish lessons. Malis had a lot of problems teaching the illiterate group. They were supposed to memorize a lot of lessons. It was the only way to teach them.

“¿Que edad tiene ud.? – Ki laj ou genyen?” (“How old are you?”) Malis taught the group. He asked them to repeat after him.

“Tengo 34 años de edad. – M gen 34 an.” (I am 34 years old.)

“¿Cúantos niños tiene ud.? – Konbyen timoun ou genyen?” (“How many children do you have?”)

“¿Es casado/a?” – Eske ou marye?” (“Are you married?”

“Wi. M marye. - Si soy casado.” (“Yes, I am married”)

“¿Es soltero/a?” – Ou selibatè? Ou pa marye?” (“Are you single?”)

“¿Porqué quiere entrar a los Estados Unidos de América? - Poukisa ou vle antre Ozetazini?” (“Why do you want to go to the U.S.A?”)

“¡Libertad y trabajo! – Libète ak travay.” (“Freedom and work!”)

“Somos los agentes de la patrulla Fronteriza Americana – Nou se ajan patwouy ameriken.” (“We are the U.S. Border Patrol agents”)

“Si nou tande ekspresyon sa-a nan bouch ajan ki sou bato ameriken yo, sa vle di yo kenbe nou. Yo ka pimpe nou an Ayiti,” Pwofesè Orosco anseye. “Sa vle di m pral an Ayiti avèk nou si yo dekouvri nou se Ayisyen. Nou sipoze di nou se Kiben ki pale panyòl.” (“If you hear this expression from the mouths of the U.S. agents, that means they caught us. They can send us back to Haiti,” taught Professor Orosco. “That means I am going to Haiti with you if they find out that we are Haitians. You are supposed to say you are all Spanish-speaking Cubans.”)

“¡Somos cubanos! – Se Kiben nou ye! Se Kiben nou ye!” (“We are Cubans!”).

Since Sept. 17,2011, large groups of demonstrators have been protesting against what they perceive to be the overt shameless corporate American greed. They are fed up by the rapaciousness of Wall Street, inattention and ungratefulness of the large banks that received large sums of money under the TARP that bailed them out of economic, financial crises during the early days of the recession only to turn back and hit the same tax payers with bank fees and sorts of money schemes. What is worse is that the bank presidents and higher officials are rewarded for their work with large bonuses ranging in the millions of dollars.

What is Occupy Wall Street all about?

“#OCCUPYWALLSTREET is a people powered movement for democracy that began in America on September 17 with an encampment in the financial district of New York City
Inspired by the Egyptian Tahrir Square uprising and the Spanish acampadas, we vow to end the monied corruption of our democracy.”

Nòt Kreyol: Translation of the Preposition “To” indicating motion to a place:
Kreyòl uses “Nan” before the noun indicating the place to express motion to a place. Also, keep in mind that nouns that refer to specified, unique places usually do not need the definite article. For example, I am going to church – M pral legliz; I am going to school – M pral lekòl.

Possessive in Creole
Whose is it? Se pou ki moun?
(Belonging to, pertaining to, indicating possession)
Bato sa-a se pou Jan. Se bato Jan.
Se rad Tipapa. Rad sa-a se pou Tipapa
Notes / Nòt: An easy way to understand and express possession in Haitian Creole is to have the noun referring to what is owned followed by the name of the owner. If a pronoun follows a noun, it is used as a possessive adjective.
Examples: Se lajan/kòb Delòm. Se kòb li – (It’s Delòm’s money. It is his money)

The release of this new CD, 'Most Popular Haitian Children's Church Songs in French and Creole' is in response to the many requests obtained from U.S and Canadian Churches with missionary work in Haiti. Many missionaries have also written me about this CD.

Thanks for your long wait. I hope that many of these songs and choruses will help you worship, sing along and deepen your learning of the culture and Haitian languages.

As you may have already known this, Haiti has two official languages. While we are currently focusing on the language spoken by all Haitians, we will also pay attention to the other language, French. Creole and French exist side by side in Haiti. It makes sense that some of the popular songs are in French or both of the languages.

Most Popular Haitian Children's Songs and Choruses will get you acquainted with this bilingualism that exists in Haiti.

That is why we have created http://kreyolaudiomp3.blogspot.com to help Missionaries find some of the Christian CDs we are going to publish on this site. Good listening and please inform your friends and sister churches and other missionaries about this release!

Jou Konferans: Jou Entèvyou Ant Paran ak Mèt Lekòl

Nan lekòl Etazuni, jou konferans se jou paran gen entèvyou ak pwofesè oswa mèt lekòl. Yon fwa pa ane, papa oubyen manman elèv yo vini nan lekòl pou koze avèk mèt. Yo vle konnen ki kalite pwogrè pitit yo ap fè nan klas yo. Mèt Garcia nan premyè ane li nan lekòl la. Se premyè seri entèvyou l-ap bay. Kè-l ap bat anpil pandan l-ap tann paran yo. Yon papa antre nan klas la.

Mèt Garcia: Bonjou, mesye Jan. Ki sa- m ka fè pou ou?

Mesye Jan: Bonjou. M se papa AnaMari Rodriguez. Pitit fi-m nan nan klas Matematik ou a.

Mèt Garcia: (Li panse yon ti moman paske li gen anpil elèv fi nan klas matematik la.) Mèwi AnaMari se yon bon elèv. Li toujou pase tout egzamen li yo. Li pral fè yon bèl nòt nan klas mwen an.

Mesye Jan: O! Trè byen. Se trè byen sa. Eske AnaMari toujou fè devwa li?

Mèt Garcia: Wi. Mèwi. Pa gen anpil bon etudyan tankou pitit fi ou la nan tout lekòl la. Li toujou prepare leson li. Li reponn kesyon m poze-l tou. Li toujou pote liv ak plum li. Li fè yon bon travay

Mesye Jan: Mèsi Letènèl! Ou se premye mèt ki di sa. Tout lòt mèt yo di ke AnaMari sòt, enbesil, Yo di AnaMari pa janm vle fè dewa li, ke li pase tout jounen an san li pa etudye. Tout sa li fè se selman se panse ak tigason.

Mèt Garcia: Non, Mesye. Pitit fi ou la pa konsa. Lòt mèt yo dwe fè erè.

Mesye Jan: Mèsi anpil. Mèsi anpil.

Mèt Garcia: Aprè sis minut. Yon lòt paran antre nan klas la.

Mesye Jansibon Rodrigues: Bonjou Mesye. M se papa AnaMaria Rodrigues. Pitit fi-m nan nan klas Matematik ou a

Mèt Garcia: (Li etone. Li surpri anpil). AnaMaria Rodrigues. O! Bondye! Se
AnaMaria pa ou la ki se bon elèv la. M te fè yon erè. Gen de AnaMaria nan klass mwen yo.







--------------El Dia De Conferencia: El Dia de Entrevista Entre Padres y Maestros------------

En las escuelas de los Estados Unidos, los dias de conferencia son los dias cuando padres tienen una entrevista entre los profesores o maestros. Una vez al año, los padres o las madres de los alumnos vienen a las escuelas para platicar con los maestros. Quieren saber que tipo de progreso sus niños estan haciendo en las clases. Maestro Gracia está en su primer año de enseñanza en la escuela. Es el primer grupo de entrevistas que el está dando. El espera nerviosamente la llegada de los padres (Su corazón palpita mucho mientras espera a los padres)

Maestro Garcia: Buenos Días! En qué puedo servirle?

Sr. Juan: Buenos Días! Soy el padre de AnaMaria Rodriguez. Mi hija está en su clase de Matemáticas.

Maestro Garcia: (Piensa un momentito porque tiene muchas alumnas en sus clases.). Ah sí. AnaMari es una alumna excelente. Siempre sale bien en los exámenes. Va a sacar una nota buena en mi clase.

Sr. Juan: Ay, qué bueno! Hace siempre AnaMari su tarea?

Maestro Garcia: Claro que sí. En la escuela no hay muchas como ella. Siempre prepara sus lecciones y contesta mis preguntas. Trae sus libros y su pluma todos los dias. Hace buen trabajo.
