Lakou Dantes

 Jacmel, Haiti

Afro-Indigenous Led Farm and Botanika 

Lakou Dantes is an Afro Indigenous-led and centered, healing quilombo, land-based intentional community, sacred herbal farm & botanika. We are a collective of healers, Manbos and Oungans working hand and hand with the lwa and ancestors to steward sacred land in Jakmel, Ayiti. Giving birth to land reclamation, community wellness, Vodou veneration, spiritual & ancestral Rites of Passage and transformative justice. We commit to creating the necessary synergy and community based relationships that begin to merge and heal our indigenous intergenerational communities- globally and locally.

This is not only a place for refuge but also serves as a place of regeneration and reclamation, invoking the spirit of self agency and communal healing. We are anchored in sharing land, resources, skills, labor, and healing modalities, to explore new approaches to healing the whole spectrum of the human condition. We are grounded in advancing the healing and elevation of our communities, our lineages, our descendants, healing ancestral trauma and cultivating generational healing and reconnection.

We believe that any community-spiritual intervention must contain a healing component that allows the full spectrum of the human condition to be addressed, including mental, emotional, physical and spiritual imbalances that manifest as a result of oppression, colonialism, and generational trauma. We offer interventions to return back to our indigenous roots, that include a strong element of self-determined agency, as we all have the ability to heal ourselves and each other.
