Join us as we explore Wikipedia resources for Haiti and Haitians in English, Kreyòl and French. We will also give a brief intro to Wikimedia and Wikipedia and learn what gaps exist about Haiti and Haitians on the largest online reference site in the world and ways to use this resource to make Haitian children and adults more computer literate and more knowledgeable about their culture, history and language.
