Sample text

This exogenous instantiation of zombification in the Haitian context thus operated by a systematic and general classification of a practice conceived of as inherent and indicative. The imagination, which is at the source of the expression of this theme, is not taken in account, or rather, is taken literally, ‘‘realized,’’ made real, tacked on to the Haitian reality as if it were intrinsically linked to the Haitian. Haiti: it is Vaudou; Vaudou: witchcraft; and witchcraft . . zombification. But we can ask what were, and what could still be, the repercussions of this exogenous ascription for certain Haitian representations of zombification.

17 Certain representations confirm this even further. We must recognize that the situation is conducive to the development and perpetuation of stereotypes and of diverse mutual fears. 18 Throughout history, this coexistence has not always been peaceful: troops from the newly formed Haitian republic invaded and annexed the eastern part of the island, which they occupied from 1822 to 1844; in 1937, the dictator Leo´nidas Trujillo ordered the massacre of tens of thousands of Haitians, which constituted threequarters of the agricultural workforce in the Dominican Republic at the time, even while exportations of sugar and rum were essential elements of the national economy.

The occupation in question is no longer at the political-military level, but is here raised to the level of knowledge—the knowledge of zombification as it was researched by the Americans in an attempt to reconstitute it. The following story, collected in the countryside of Haiti, tells of a curious student who had come from the United States—all this was explained to me in the discussions that took place after the story’s narration—and met a ‘‘boˆkoˆ’’ (sorcerer): He was a curious person who had come to Haiti, wanting some facts—just like you!
