International Creole Institute is launched in Seychelles - a new chapter for the Creole communities of the world ( An International Creole Institute was officially opened on Friday, December 10, in the mid-ocean islands of the Seychelles. Regional dignitaries in Seychelles to commemorate 30th anniversary of Indian Ocean Commission (COI), were standing alongside the Seychelles Vice President Danny Faure and Ministers Vincent Meriton, MacSuzy Mondon, and Peter Sinon, with high-ranking officials of the islands and friends of the Creole language and culture who witnessed a new chapter in the history of the island`s Creole Institute, when a commemorative plaque in the Seychelles` three official languages was unveiled.

It was Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister for Tourism and Culture, who had the honor to invite Jean-Paul Adam, the Seychelles Minister for Foreign Affairs; Jean Claude de L`Estrac, Secretary General of the Indian Ocean Commission; Didier Robert, the President Regional Council of La Reunion; and Roland Robert, the Vice President of the General Council of La Reunion to unveil the plaque and write a new chapter in the history of the institution.

The International Creole Institute continues to perpetuate the prime mission of the former Creole Institute of Seychelles. The development and the promotion of Creole language and all that is Creole remains the mission of International Creole Institute. Having now acquired an international status, the institute will have an administrative council to represent the different Creole-speaking countries in the region and further afield. The institute`s mission is also broadened and its main working method will be through joint collaborative projects among Creole countries and islands and among organizations. When he was officially launching the International Creole Institute, Alain St.Ange, the Minister for Tourism and Culture, said, “Today Seychelles is witnessing an important event in the history of Creole Institute. It is with pride that Seychelles and La Reunion are offering to the Community of the Creole World a Creole Institute of International dimension.”

Minister St.Ange said that the international status of the Creole Institute will contribute immensely in the development of Creole culture.

“Today we are making an important milestone in the history of the Creole Institute. Seychelles, with the support of the Regional and General Councils of La Reunion Island, are joining forces to transform the Creole Institute of Seychelles into an international institution that will not only serve Seychelles and La Reunion, but the Creole communities at large. As a nation we are proud to speak Creole, and to live the Creole culture. Many Creole-speaking islands are looking at our achievements and now, through this International Creole Institute, researches and those passionate about the world of creoles can work together for future generations. We can and we should put our efforts together and proudly live our unique creole culture,” Minister St.Ange said before inviting the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Mauritius to join Seychelles and La Reunion in the Creole project.

Didier Robert, the President of Regional Council of La Reunion; Roland Robert, the Vice President of the General Council of La Reunion; and Penda Choppy, the Director of the Institute all spoke at this official opening ceremony of the International Creole Institute.
