First Haitian-American Female Comes to Congress, Ludmya Bourdeau

The Caribbean bloodline has been tested by a history of enslavement, proven to be resilient and spirited, never giving into defeat and always hoping for a better tomorrow. Here are examples of Caribbean-Americans, who have made their imprint on the American consciousness.

Haitian-American Ludmya Bourdeau recreated herself by adopting a Utah town as her legal residence, joining the Mormon Church, and running for mayor under the name Mia Love as a Republican, and winning. This month she became the first black and Haitian-American woman to win a Republican Congress seat in the general elections. She stands on the shoulders of Toussaint Louverture, who became leader of the first black-led nation in the world in 1804.

Mia Love prides herself as Mormon, not as Haitian-American

In one of her first moves as a member of congress, Republican Mia Love has begun to distance herself from her Haitian roots. This news comes just weeks after Haitians celebrated alongside the first Black woman in the Republican party to achieve the feat of becoming a congresswoman. It seems Ms. Love is more attuned to her Mormon side than her Haitian-American roots.

Granted, Ms. Love has made no particular denouncement of the Haitian side of her heritage, her parents both being immigrants from the country, but her repeated references to herself as a Mormon woman has left the impression that is the facet of her past she wishes to acknowledge. It has left many of those who rose up to support her either on the fence or completely now on the other side. Apart from the round-about renouncement, Love's very religion will prove an alienating factor for Haitians, 80% of whom are Roman Catholic. It has also been said that many Haitians will not understand what a Mormon is. Some apparently believe it has something to do with the devil. It is also said that Love's parents were distressed when both she and her sister decided to follow that faith.

"Mr. President, I'm here to tell you the American people are awake and we're not buying what you're selling in 2012," . Love further said: "Let me tell you about the America I know. My parents immigrated to this country with $10 in their pockets and the hope the America they heard about really did exist. When tough times came, they did not look to Washington, they looked within. So, the America I grew up knowing was centered in self-reliance and filled with the possibility of living the American dream."
