Founded by Naima of Climbing PoeTree, Ayiti Resurrect is a collective of visionary artists, community builders, holistic healers, and sustainable farmers from Haiti and the African Diaspora. Formed in the aftermath of the January 2010 earthquake in the spirit of people-to-people solidarity, we work in collaboration with residents of Komye, a rural village in Leogane, Haiti, to support the social, spiritual, emotional, physical, and environmental health of the community. Through art and music therapy workshops, yoga and meditation, wellness clinics, reforestation initiatives, women’s self-determination circles, and sustainable agriculture skill-shares, our aim is contribute to the strength and autonomy of the Haitian community through this long term project dedicated to transforming trauma through collective healing.
