  • March 17, 2017 will MARK 100 YEARS of termination of East Indian Indentureship

    As Dr Kumar Mahabir of University of Trinidad and Tobago has pointed out:


    Next year will mark the centenary since East Indian indentureship (1838-1917) ended in the Caribbean

    The official date of the termination of this semi-slave system is 21 March 1917.

    So the questions arise:

    1. Is Government of Trinidad and Tobago, organizations or communities planning to hold functions/events to commemorate this important milestone in the history?


    2. Should March 2017 be dedicated to honoring our ancestors of East Indian descent in the Caribbean?
