Haiti - Heritage : 227th anniversary of the ceremony of Bois-Caïman
As part of the commemoration of the 227th anniversary of the Bois-Caïman ceremony (August 13-14, 1791 / August 13-14, 2018), the National Bureau of Ethnology (BNE) is organizing an exploratory mission to the North Department of Haiti to work on the preservation and enhancement of the historic and cultural sites of Cap-Haïtien. In accordance with its mission of safeguarding and enhancing the intangible cultural heritage of Haiti, the BNE works to enhance the site of the "congrès des clairières" by its historical value, its cultural heritage, its cult dimension and its aesthetic strength.

The aim is to disseminate and publicize the historic site of Bois-Caïman as an intangible cultural heritage by the widest possible public.


In addition, the BNE did realize by the Ministry of Culture and Communication (MCC), the Institute for the Protection of National Heritage (ISPAN) and the National School of Arts (ENARTS), by four artists Haitians a symbolic fresco to commemorate the Ceremony of Bois Caïman, starting point of the Revolution of Santo Domingo for the Freedom of Slaves. The artists who made this fresco under the direction of the Director General of Enarts, Philippe Dodard are : Darius Mckenley, Reynard Beaufort, Francisco Silva and José Midi.
