Lherison Debreus (also spelled Debrise) was born in 1971 near the second largest city in Haiti, Cap Haitien. His mother left for Port-au-Prince when he was little and settled in the Bel Air area near (vodou priest and flag maker) Tibout's house and temple. When he was fourteen, Lherison joined his mother. He would hang out at Tibout's temple, which bustled with activity.... Lherison began participating in the atelier, which included flag making. In 1994 Tibout died. Lherison was on his own. He decided to continue making flags.
