Astronism in Haiti refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Republic of Haiti. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Haiti, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Haiti oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Haiti is split into ten departments and holds one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Port-au-Prince.
This national branch of the Astronist Institution manages the official representation and depiction of Astronism throughout this territory, including efforts to protect the identity of the philosophy with the intention of further disseminating it throughout the territory.
It is the Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to the philosophy in this territory as any other organisations or institutions proclaiming such a role are deemed as unauthorised proprietors and are therefore considered as part of the anti-Institutionist movement.
Several terms are used to refer to the presence of Astronism in Haiti including:
- Astro-Haitian philosophy
- Astro-Haitian religion
- Astro-Haitian spirituality
- Haitian astroncy
- Haitian Astronism
- Haitian astronomical religion
- Haitian Cosmism
- Haitian space religion
History of Astronism in Haiti
As of December 2020, Astronism is not recognised by the Haitian government as a valid religious group in the country. Despite this unrecognised status, the Astronist Institution has designated the situation of religious liberties for Astronists in Haiti as apathetic, thus highlighting relative tolerance of Haitian society regarding religious minorities.
In later 2020, the Astronist Institution published its Demographics of Astronism report which stated that there are around 2,784 Astronists in Haiti. As of 2020, Astronist content had not yet been translated or made widely publicly available in Haiti, thus owing to the small numbers of Astronists in the country.
