Kriye Bode is a term that signifies the call to participate. Kriye Bode calls people to join together to dance, sing, drum and rejoice in the energy of life, as a community. As the artistic founder of Kriye Bode, Peniel Guerrier has dreamt of bringing this Haitian experience to the people of New York. The first Kriye Bode Colloquium took place in the spring of 2005.

The attendees participated in an interactive and riveting lecture on Haitian folklore followed by a two-hour Haitian dance class and drum circle. The dance class and drum circle gave meaning to movements and rhythms discussed in the lecture. The day ended with a performance by Peniel's students, which brought the lessons of day to life.
