Tradisyon Lakou Lakay is Haitian Creole and loosely translated to Hometown Traditions. More specifically, "lakou" is a community or shared space where everyone collectively has access to the process of wholesome living. So, partake in our "lakou" and help TLL to continue providing and expand its programming to our constituents.

TLL, Inc. is a non-profit, 501-c3 arts and culture organization. We are always looking to form partnerships and welcome private donors. The Spring Fest and Summer Intensive Institute (Sii) camps may be another way to show your support by volunteering your time, donate supplies, serve as a chaperone or by providing scholarships to our campers. 

Spring Fest is a week long camp and Sii is our four-week Summer program. TLL Youth Engagement Study Circle (YES-C) is a monthly meetup providing a safe place for individuals ages 12 -21 to engage in meaningful conversations fostering mental wealth, emotional intelligence and self advocacy skills. TLL welcomes mentorship opportunity for our YES-C leaders, who are Agents of Positive Social Change. The work of TLL also consists of cultural data through its HFDC LAB, which was held this year at Future of Cities Climate Innovation Hub. We were grateful to  have Alexander J. Thome to host an interview with Dr. W. 'Yanui' César which was one of the first podcast writen on Haitian Folkloric Dance as it relates to restorative and innovative and community healing work as much as it is placemaking.

TLL, Inc is in need of a space to call its own "lakou" or home. TLL will also benefit from having a team of people who share the same passion for the arts and culture to spread the TLL Story. If you have attended any of our events, please share a comment or a review to help us promote the amazing work we do as well as the Haitian Folkloric Dance as a performance art. The experience of a "leveled plane field" may not be common for most. However, the goal and desire to leverage the arts and culture may be more common for all.  At times,  this work may be lonely and difficult; however, passion, consistency and having equitable access to needed resources, while fostering positive relationships, are vital to the LAKOU process.
