The Haitians are a street gang and cartel from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. They are the main rivals of the Cubans/Los Cabrones, and they vie for control of the poorer neighbourhoods of Vice City (Little Haiti and Little Havana).

Auntie Poulet, the leader, gives Tommy Vercetti mind-altering drugs to make him use less-than-honest tactics in their war against the Cubans. Vercetti, angered and spurred by his friendship with the Cubans, massacres members of the Haitian gang and completely destroys their large drug manufacturing plant (killing many more members in the process), thereby severing all ties with Poulet and the gang. After this, the Haitians become openly hostile to Vercetti and later his gang members. The Haitians do not appear in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, meaning they became active in the city sometime between 1984 and 1986.

Haitian gang members are seen wearing either blue shirts (reading RELAX), white pants and baseball caps, or sky blue sleeveless shirts, jeans and blue bandanas.

Haitian-American discrimination controversy

The third version of GTA Vice City had all references to the Haitian people removed, (along with a number of other trademarks), in response to Cuban and Haitian groups in the United States, who threatened to use action against Rockstar Games, on the basis that they were being discriminated against.

Notes

In the Well stacked pizza co in Little Haiti, there is a Cuban gang member that spawns in the kitchen facing the cooker as if he's helping out. Perhaps community service or an alloted job from the Vice City Police Department. This individual gangster is not hostile to you in any way even after the collapse of the Haitians factory.
