More about Haiti

Mulattos (around 5% of the population) live in the cities, the few whites are predominantly foreigners. With 398 residents / km 2, Haiti is one of the most densely populated countries in Latin America. 39% of the population (2017) live in rural areas (1950: 88%).

Social: The standard of living of the population is very low, and social and medical care is inadequate. The consequences are extremely high infant mortality (4.8%) and low life expectancy.
The constitution guarantees religious freedom and binds the practice of religion to the general state legal framework. According to the latest available surveys, which differ from one another, around 55–57% of the population belong to the Catholic Church (two archdioceses with eight suffragan dioceses), around 25–30% Protestant churches (especially Baptists [more than 15%], as well as Pentecostals, Methodists and others)), over 1% of the Anglican Church (Diocese of Haiti; part of the Protestant Episcopal Church). Seventh-day Adventists make up about 3% of the population. In addition to practicing Christian faith, 50–80% of the population practice voodoo (officially recognized as a religion since 2003). Religious minorities like the Muslims or Rastafari together make up an estimated 3–7% of the population. About 5–11% cannot be assigned to any religion.
The “popular religion” of Haiti
The “popular religion” of Haiti: Voodoo
On April 7, 2003, the 200th anniversary of the death of Haitian national hero François Dominique Toussaint Louverture, President Jean-Bertrand Aristide recognized voodoo as the official religion, thus equating the cult in Haiti with the Christian religion and Islam. This was, as it were, the end of a line of development in the history of religion in Haiti, which began in the 16th century with the forced settlement of black African slaves.
Voodoo is an African American religion whose gods are worshiped in ecstatic forms and honored through offerings. In Haiti, around three quarters of the population practice voodoo rituals, which can therefore be regarded as the actual “folk religion” of Haiti. The Haitians do not see it as a contradiction to be followers of Voodoo and at the same time Christian. Their ancestors had to camouflage the cults they had brought with them from their African homeland as slaves on the sugar cane plantations because their white masters tried to enforce Christianity. This is how the mixture of African religiosity and ideas of popular Catholicism, which characterizes voodoo, emerged, in which almost every Catholic saint has a deity (“loa”) of voodoo, e. B. Peter and Papa Legba, the lord of the crossroads,
Since the African cults could only be practiced in secret, Voodoo quickly gained the reputation of a secret religion. Voodoo became politically effective when the slaves rebelled against their white masters in 1791 and drove them out in bloody battles until 1804. In Europe and America, Haiti was seen as a land of bloodthirsty devils, especially when the voodoo cult was discovered as a film theme in Hollywood and the voodoo deity of the zombie in particular became a terrifying and terrifying motif in horror films.
In Haiti, Voodoo has a major impact on people’s beliefs and everyday life. Hardly any politician neglects to ask the Loas about his chances of holding a certain office. Investigations by UNDP, the development program of the UN, also showed that after dismissals jobs cannot be filled because a potential applicant fears the evil magic of the dismissed person. In this respect, Voodoo has an inhibiting effect on Haiti’s economic development.
