Haitians have a recurring theme with these 3 modern-day countries from what I’ve seen:1. Cameroon/Congo 2. Nigeria 3. Benin/Togo.These 3 countries are a forever recurring theme in almost every ancestry DNA for the average Haitian.

Haitians have a recurring theme with these 3 modern-day countries from what I’ve seen:1. Cameroon/Congo 2. Nigeria 3. Benin/Togo.These 3 countries are a forever recurring theme in almost every ancestry DNA for the average Haitian.

Based on spoken history (old adages/sayings and DNA), I’m going to venture and say these ethnic groups are very present within many of us here on the island:

1. Igbo (found in Southern Nigeria close to Cameroon)

“Nou se Ibo” (“We are Igbos”)

This is an old Haitian saying

The word Ibo which translates to Igbo is very revered in Haitian culture and translate to South Eastern Nigerian tribe of Igbo. There are at least one street (Route Ibo lélé), a hotel (Hotel Ibo), radio station (radio Ibo) and many other known historic clubs by the name of Ibo, honoring the Igbo ancestry. There’s even a dance called ‘Ibo dance’ (dansé ibo). There’s also a folklore song honoring them: Ibo grandmoun (Igbos are their own authority).
