Haiti Identification Card - Carte d'Identite

Haiti Identification Card - Carte d'Identite

Here is the Haitian Identification card, called a Carte d'Identite Nationale.

This is the ID card of my grand mother Adrienne Joseph

Every Haitian has a NIF... What is a NIF?

NIF in Haiti means:
- numéro d'immatriculation fiscale
- numéro d'identité fiscale
- numéro d'identification fiscale

It all means the same thing. Here is where it comes from:

The Haitian fiscal identity card was created in 1987 by the Haiti Tax Branch (Direction générale des impôts or DGI), which assigned a fiscal registration number (numéro d'immatriculation fiscale or NIF) to all Haitian citizens and foreigners required to pay tax in Haiti.

The NIF on the fiscal identity card is made up of 10 digits.

What about the Haiti national identification card?

The Haiti national identification card (carte d'identification nationale) was supposed to replace the fiscal identity card. This card was created on 7 July 2005 for the 2006 elections. This card was also supposed to replace the Haiti elector's card, which was issued for the last time for the 2000 elections by the Haitian Provisional Electoral Council (Conseil électoral provisoire d'Haiti)

Haiti: Peyi sa pa Ofri anyen, CHILI tèt Dwat

Haiti: Peyi sa pa Ofri anyen, CHILI tèt Dwat

Many Haitians say to themselves: This country has nothing to offer me. Off to Chili they go...

I know many Haitians on the countryside of Haiti who have sold their land to send their sons and daughters to Chile hoping for a better life.

Haitian Creole:


Anpil Haitien di: Haiti: Peyi sa pa ofri anyen, CHILI tèt dwat. Kantite Haitien kap pile teritwa Chili disit fen lane 2017 la ap depase 100 mil.

Mwen konnen anpil peyizan Haitien ki vann tè ak byen yo pou voye pitit yo Chili. Yo swete yo lavi miyò pou zanfan yo.

Haitians protesters decide to burn down a gas station during a street protest

Haitians protesters decide to burn down a gas station during a street protest

Look at this photo... Haitians protesters decide to burn down a gas station during the 17 October 2017 street protests against the budget and Haitian president Jovenel Moise.

The funny thing is, the owner of this gas station probably has nothing to do with the budget or who is president Haiti.

But Haiti is open for business!

And of course, the people need jobs!

USA Money dollar bill

USA Money dollar bill

They call it green back, here is a photo of the United States one-dollar bill.

The words written on it are in Haiti Creole

Lew blayi nan posh mwen gen sekirite nan kay la
sevre depi-w antre nan kay la, sevre bagay yo chanje

Once I have you in my pocket I feel safe
It's true when I have you in my pocession everything changes.

This from the song CESAR by System Band

Deep fried insects... A Delicacy in Thailand and Cambodia

Deep fried insects... A Delicacy in Thailand and Cambodia

Deep fried locust and in fact crickets, cockroaches and other creepy crawlies too, can be bought on most roadsides in Thailand and Cambodia. If you purchase fried locust from the right stall you may be pleasantly surprised, with the right amount of chilly or sugar if you have a sweet tooth, these crunchy snacks can be quite a delight. What might surprise you is that these fried insects are actually an excellent and cheap source of protein and are an excellent source of nutrients, especially in the developing world.

PHOTO: Haiti - Lo Patat - How sweet potato is sold in street markets

PHOTO: Haiti - Lo Patat - How sweet potato is sold in street markets

Look at this photo... In Haiti's street markets (maché) sweet potato is sold by the "LO," they are lotted up for sale. Each lot cost between 10 gourdes and 25 gourdes...

In other countries that I have visited inclusing the neighboring Dominican Republic, sweet potato is sold by the pound.

Jou mache en Haiti se pa LO yo vann patat, men nan lot peyi mwen visite, se pa LIV yo vann sa...
