As is tradition every year on this island, the last day of the festival dedicated to highlighting the African cultural heritage, known as Kwanzaa, is chosen. In expressing his gratitude, the Cuban Ambassador highlighted the symbolism of the event, for two of Kwanzaa's essential principles are "kujichagulia" (self-determination) and "umoja" (unity of family, community and nation) At the same time symbols of the triumph of the Haitian slaves who fought for their freedom and the revolutionary triumph of the Cubans, whose creator was the Commander-in-Chief.
