May is officially Haitian Heritage Month! May is also the feast month for Haiti's Agriculture Spirits: KOUZEN & KOUZIN, the powerful duo of farmer and merchant who are both healers. Unbeknownst to many, Kouzin is a woman, a successful Merchant (Machann), with a keen business sense, and beastly bargaining skills. She is a business woman who ensures her survival, and that of her family.
