5,000+ extraordinary artifacts
Kathy Dicquemare collection is one of the largest in the world. The most important items were appraised by leading laboratories. Many items are unique and are the object of further analysis.
While protecting the collection of the foundation, the museum has an educational objective to make discover the Taíno culture to the largest number of people. Access to the Museum will be free for local schools.
The Taíno museum in Haiti will be built in the middle of a tropical garden, respecting the environment in which the Taíno people lived before the arrival of Christopher Columbus in 1492.
Taíno (good people) are part of the roots of Haiti. Ayiti (“land of high mountains”) was the indigenous Taíno name for the entire island of Hispaniola, which has kept its name as it is used as the Haitian Creole form for Haiti.
