Haitians in the Heartland: Indianapolis sees its Haitian community grow

Haitians in the Heartland explores the emergence of Haitian-American communities across the United States, outside of the country’s typical, mostly coastal enclaves. This installment of Haitians in the Midwest is the second in a series about such locales.

INDIANAPOLIS — Will Indianapolis surpass Miami to become the new Haitian-American mecca? Probably not anytime soon, but a recent increase of Haitian-Americans is certainly shaping Indiana’s capital.
