(p.101) Chapter 4 Slaves or Peasants
The Haitians

Jean Casimir

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter focuses on the legal and social difference between the status of peasant, slave, and cultivator in the colony and Republic of Haiti. When property owners tried to replace the word slave, they did not change the character’s role. The rebaptized cultivator was still meant to remain a laborer. When the Haitian oligarchs succeeded the European oligarchy in 1804, there was no significant difference in the treatment of the population.
