Haiti, the conflicted country that Nakia fled to
14 November 2022
In the film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Haiti is mentioned several times for being the location of Nakia’s escape. Travelers who follow Marvel, especially Black Panther, certainly know that Nakia is one of the supporting characters who is a spy for Wakanda as well as T’Challa’s lover.
In the latest Marvel film, Nakia is told to live in Haiti after Thanos wiped out almost half of the world’s population. A little spoiler, at the end of the film, explained the reason why Nakia chose Haiti as her last stop after T’Challa’s death.
One is to raise his child with T’Challa, Toussaint. They did not want their son to grow up under the pressure of claiming the throne. Nakia has been raising Toussaint and has also invited Shuri to live in Haiti.

When it comes to Haiti, one of the poorest countries in the Caribbean is in constant conflict. They are currently also faced with a cholera epidemic that is inherent in their citizens.
Since October, Haitians have been dying of cholera, which is spreading so fast. It is feared that cholera will continue to spread and the tragedy of the epidemic that occurred a decade ago that killed 10,000 will repeat itself.
The test that is faced is not only disease, Haiti also has to face criminal gang conflicts that continue to run rampant. The latest news, one journalist was shot dead at his home. This death is the eighth this year. Tragic!

Haitian criminal gangs continue to run rampant seeking control and control over the political vacuum after the assassination of President Jovenel Moise last year.
As a result, the security and humanitarian crisis has become a ghost that also strangles Haitians. The weeks-long blockade left food, electricity, water supplies running low and the threat of starvation in sight.
Reportedly, about 20,000 people in the capital Cite Soleil are in a precarious condition with little food in stock. And Haiti’s nearly 5 million population is battling malnutrition with conflict, cholera and crime threatening.
The beauty of Haiti tourism
Behind the country’s crisis, Haiti is actually a beautiful country that has tourism potential that cannot be underestimated. Call it Port-Salut Beach, Kokoye, Jacmel, Ils-a-Rat and Wahoo Bay. These beaches have gentle contours, clear waters and white sand.
Haiti has 300 caves, most of which are untouched. One of the most famous, is the Grotte Marie Jeanne Cave. You can feel the sensation of going down using a rope (descending) as deep as 90 meters there, you know.
One of Haiti’s favorites is Bassin Bleu, three natural pools whose waters are blue and turquoise and connected by waterfalls. It is located not far from Port-au-Prince (the country’s capital).
There are also historical relics such as Jacmel, Cap Haitien, Sans Souci and La Citadelle Henry (included in UNESCO World Heritage). These areas are historical tourist destinations in Haiti and each has its own story.
If you want to see Haiti’s green and beautiful nature, just visit La Visite National Park. This national park is full of dense forests, mountains and valleys. Interestingly, there are many villages there with a strong culture.
