“Ayiti Cheri”: Cultural Maintenance of Adolescents in Rural Haiti
Abstract: Despite severe challenges, rural Haitian early adolescents demonstrate remarkable allegiance to their home country, culture, and traditional family values. This talk presents questionnaire data among 105 rural youth showing a strong Haitian orientation, very strong beliefs regarding adolescents’ obligations to the family (boys especially), and very low U.S. orientation.
