Polish Influence in Casal

Polish Influence in Casal

The Polish population in Haiti is concentrated largely in Casale, a small town close to Port-au-Prince. They came originally as part of the French Army in 1802 which tried to suppress the revolt. Feeling conflicted about suppressing the Haitians while their own country was embroiled in a similar struggle, some of the Poles joined the slave revolt and were awarded with citizenship after the Haitian Independence. It has led to the interesting sight of a community filled with blue-eyed Haitians.
