26171: Wilcken (reply) Re: 26165: Twa (ask) Dessalines and Ogou Desalin (fwd)
From: Lois Wilcken <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Let me offer a traditional Vodou song in the rhythm Ibo:
Desalin sòti nan mòn, li pòte wanga Ibo (2X)
Li pòte wanga Ibo pou l touye Jan Pye Ibo
Dessalines comes out of the mountain carrying an Ibo talisman (2X)
He carries the Ibo talisman to kill Jean Pied Ibo
I'd be interested in knowing if anything in written history refers to this

I am an art historian who is currently writing about representations of
Jean-Jacques Dessalines (images, plays, histories, etc). I am particularly
interested in the political uses of Dessalines especially under the Duvalier
regime and also manifestations of Dessalines as Ogou Desalin. Besides Joan
Dayan?s ?Haiti, History and the Gods,? can anyone recommend sources to
look at or people who I can contact?
