My Haitian authority -- Jude Augusma -- currently in the States --
advised me on this point earlier today:

<<When we speak of the Haitian language we refer 
to Kreyòl. (Creole is English and French)
     Yes most of the people in Haiti refer to it the same way.>>

Jude, currently in his 30s, when there was no 
secondary school in his town, he lived
in one room with a cot, and a charcoal bucket for 
cooking for four years, in another town, by
himself, in order to get a secondary school education.
