Introduction

Along with flavorful cuisine and colorful celebrations, Haitians are proud of their country's status as the first independent nation in the western hemisphere. This Caribbean country neighbors the Dominican Republic on the island of Hispanola and speaks Haitian Creole and French, primarily.

Matador focuses on everything from music in Port-au-Prince to the country's recovery from a devastating earthquake in 2010.
