History:

Haiti is a Taino term of Indian origin which means a 'mountainous land'. rests on a third of the island of Hispaniola to its western side. The kingdom was reigned by Cacique/Taino Indian Chief when Columbus arrived. The arrival of the French subdued the indigenous inhabitants in the seventeenth Century.

African slaves from West Africa were imported to provide cheap labour in the production of raw materials. In a few years, Haiti became French's richest colony and was recognized as the 'Pearl of the Antilles'.

Haitians begun to resist the exploitation by the intruders and revolted against them around 1791-1804. In this spirit, Napoleon Bonaparte was ordered to sell Louisiana to the U.S in 1803, and as a result the United States territory experienced a great expansion.

Once they gained their independence in 1804, they renamed their habitat from Haiti to Saint Domingue.
