Emmanuel Alexandre Jr. is a Haitian-American filmmaker and instructor living in New York City.He earned a bachelors degree in media studies from Hunter College and a MFA in cinematography and documentary directing from The City College of New York. He was awarded a Bert Saperstein Grant, which allowed him to direct his first documentary film “Welcome to Batey 6.”

The word “Vodoun” or Vodou has always had a negative connotation for me. As a boy I was taught to fear the word. I would never speak about it aloud. I felt it was shameful. Ask a Haitians about Vodou and you get a sense that the person wants to run for the hills. We’ve been taught to fear “Hougan” and “Manbo”. They’re seen as sorcerers who deal in the occult and “black magic” for their own personal gain.

I’ve always wondered why?

We Haitians wish to disassociate ourselves from that word. We feverishly make the “sign of the cross” – we raise our hands to the sky in praise of the Lord – and beg Him to save us.

We would comically use French words like “pardon” or “bien sur” to signal that our social status and education level put us “above” such superstition. Those feelings ran contradictory to what we were living and experiencing as a people.

I was told tales of “Simbi nan dlo” – the water protector or La Sirene, a character who lures men or children into the water.

The sounds of drums from miles away would vibrate deeply into our souls.

All Haitians know the feeling. Men, women, children and elders alike would drop everything and run to cheer the incoming march of a “RaRa” band. Our bodies moved in unison. We smiled freely in exalted happiness. It was an intense, personal feeling.

The Haitian culture that I know is filled with mystical incantations. My mother had rituals that could soothe her son’s nightmares.

Anyone from the corner shoe shine man to the local police officer could tell you in a heartbeat of effective cures for the body’s ailments.

Detaching ourselves from cultural practices that has been passed down from generations is practically impossible. It’s virtually etched and embedded into our DNA. The cognitive dissonance in our psyche is not easily reconciled.

When I moved to the States that feeling of rejection was intensified. We could no longer hide behind that religious or social mask. We’re all Haitians – that name Haitian, however along with that word – Vodou carried a whole new meaning when spoken in our new world. Each can often imply something unspoken – something that is “unclean” or to be feared.



I’ve always wondered – why?

Haitians in America are moved to, not only, reject our African roots – but also to fear them. Too often, when we should be proud of our strength and accomplishments, we “buckle under” criticism and perceptions that others have about us. Words hurt. Sometimes they sting so much that we start to believe them.

Vodou is a very old and complex religion. It defies description in sound bytes or academic jargon. It carries the romance of our ancestral African heritage. It contains fragments of our interwoven belief systems. These, sometimes, took on new and different shapes as a result of the transatlantic slave trade. The religion is believed to have its roots as far back as Ancient Egypt.

In Haiti, the religion was forbidden by the colonial masters fearing that its “mystical powers” would invigorate the slaves to retaliate against them. In 1935 the religion was once again outlawed and forced underground. In 1987, that ban was lifted with the drafting of the new constitution after the departure of Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier from Haiti in 1986.

Mwen kwe ke n ap avanse lan menm direksyon ke DYASPORA ENDYEN genyen ak RELIJYON yo an ENDOUYISM.
Gen tre pe DIFERANS ant ENDOUYISM ak VODOU.
Yo pataje MANJE k LESPRI yo ,menm jan ak NOU.
Le AYISYEN reyalize e tout tan yo pi "edike" y ap reyalize sa ;le yo reyalize ke le EWOPEYEN yo di ke relijyon yo SIPERYE ;ap gen plis AYISYEN PRATIKAN VODOU lan DYASPORA a e NONM lan genyen pou l ogmante.

Sa a se lan MONREYAL.Tcheke lan 36 MINIT:




Sa a se se MIYAMI

Jowèl,
Mwen vin wè bagay separe manje ak mò an lan foneray bèlmè m an Chin.
Mwen pa t janm wè sa anpèsònn lè m ta p viv ann Ayiti malgre mwen te konn tande pale de manje marasa. Petet paske aktivite sayo fèt anbachal.

Men an Chin, chinwa pa lan kache. Devan laplipa magazen, gran ou piti, genyen yon ti otatwa lan papòt lan oubyen menm sou twotwa a, avek ti limyè wouj epi
de twa zoranj, pòm oubyen lòt fouy pou zanzèt yo kapab ede biznis lan mache.

Anplis Boudism pa yon relijyon tankou lòt yo.
Se yon fason de viv. Lan respè tou sa ki ap viv. Pèsonn pa oblije al lan tanp chak semèn. Tanp yo se lan pak yo mete yo. Si vizitè an vle boule yon lansan li kapab fè yon souwè. Lanpwen lapriyè tankou katechis oubyen labib.

Antouka lanpwenmoun ki ap envoke oken sen pou tikrik tikrak.
Yo di w èd twa. Si sa pa mache se la bank pou w ale.

Okontrè ayisyen ki toujou lan bondyebon, chinwa a di mare ren w, degaje w pou fè lajan w. Bay timoun manje pa ase, se pou w fè anpil lajan pou regle tout bagay.
