Even if the welcome mat has not always been rolled out, immigrants have usually found their first foothold in the neighborhoods of their more established ethnic soul mates. Irish-brogue newcomers moved into already cloverleafed enclaves of the northwest Bronx, off-the-boat Italians went into a Bensonhurst of homes adorned with front-yard Madonnas, and Soviet Jewish refugees found shelter among the knish parlors of Brighton Beach. But such an easy osmosis does not always happen. One group of newcomers that has ended up living quite apart from its more established forerunners are the Indians who came to the United States not directly from India but from Guyana, on the northern coast of South America, and other parts of the Caribbean. These Indo-Caribbeans have not felt particularly embraced by the more flourishing Indian communities of Flushing and Elmhurst in Queens, nor have they made many overtures to the Indians. Instead they have cobbled together their own fragrant neighborhood of roti, saris and gold jewelry shops among the row houses of Richmond Hill, Queens. The comparative chasm between two kindred communities tells volumes about the complex history of Diaspora Indians. It also tells a lot about the general tango of sensitivities between longer-rooted immigrants and their raw cousins.

On Sunday, Dec. That group, the Jahajee Sisters, was formed in soon after the murders of two young Indo-Caribbean women that fit a pattern of gender-based violence, which the group defines as crimes that are rooted in gender inequality.

Translating Kali’s Feast is an interdisciplinary study of the Goddess Kali bringing together ethnography and literature within the theoretical framework of translation studies. The idea for the book grew out of the experience and fieldwork of the authors, who lived with Indo-Caribbean devotees of the Hindu Goddess in Guyana. Using a variety of discursive forms including oral history and testimony, field notes, songs, stories, poems, literary essays, photographic illustrations, and personal and theoretical reflections, it explores the cultural, aesthetic and spiritual aspects of the Goddess in a diasporic and cross-cultural context.
With reference to critical and cultural theorists including Walter Benjamin and Julia Kristeva, the possibilities offered by Kali and other manifestations of the Goddess as the site of translation are discussed in the works of such writers as Wilson Harris, V. Naipaul and R.
A content analysis by percentages will prove this claim. Indians constitute the majority ethnic group in these countries as well as the majority ethnic group in the English-speaking Caribbean. Chatelal touched Rudder, seeking recognition and acceptance, but Rudder did not even watch him. At the panel discussion on reparations for slavery, for example, indentueship was not even referenced.

For the past several years, Penn Libraries has been broadening efforts to acquire materials related to South Asian diasporas, supported by both increased interest on campus as well as new financial contribution from the Singh Family Fund. This initiative has sparked the growth of a substantive Indo-Caribbean collection that strives to reveal histories, communities, and cultural expressions that have remained underrepresented in most research libraries and understudied in scholarly discourse.
Our diasporic materials from the Caribbean represent a variety of publication genres and expressive forms, including commercial publications for popular consumption, scholarly analyses for academic audiences, as well as visual imagery and ephemera. Thematic strengths include indenture, politics, and culture.
Together, these histories provide a range of perspectives in a variety of Caribbean contexts. Studies of political matters and writings of national leaders also form a notable portion of the collection. For example, Deadlock! Cultural studies in the collection focus on matters of arts, religion, and gender. Produced from the late s to , the postcards depict staged vignettes from Indo-Caribbean life and speak to the exoticizing interests of American and European audiences.
Produced by a variety of studios for the tourist market, these postcards traveled to a wide range of locales, including the U. Penn students have been utilizing these postcards in classes to understand the histories and ramification of indenture. In coming years, the Penn Libraries expects to expand our Indo-Caribbean collection in the areas of literature, ephemera, and non-English materials in regional Hindustani dialects as we strive to highlight the diversity of voices that too often remain at the periphery in collection development and academic research.

Indo-Guyanese or Indian-Guyanese , are Guyanese nationals who trace their ancestry to the Indian subcontinent. They are the descendants of settlers who arrived between the 19th and 20th centuries from the former pre-partitioned sub-continent of India during the time of the British Raj. Most of the Indian settlers who came to Guyana were from North India , specifically from the Bhojpur and Awadh regions of the Hindi Belt located in the present-day states of Uttar Pradesh , Bihar , and Jharkhand , however a significant minority came from South India.
The vast majority of Indians came as contract laborers during the 19th century, spurred on by political upheaval, the ramifications of the Mutiny of , and famine. Others arrived as merchants, landowners and farmers pushed out by many of the same factors. On May 5, , the year in which the abolition of slavery was finalized in the British West Indies and the beginning of the indentured labor system , Indian immigrants popularly known as the ‘Gladstone Coolies’ landed in British Guiana from Calcutta in the Bengal Presidency region of British India.
Within a decade Indian immigration was largely responsible for changing the fortunes of the sugar industry, the mainstay of the economy, from the predicted ‘ruin’ to prosperity. Recruiting operations were pushed further north-westwards and the North-Western Provinces and Oudh Modern Uttar Pradesh and Bihar became the main suppliers of colonial labor. The importation of labor from the Indian subcontinent was part of a continuing search by Guianese planters for a labor force that was docile, reliable and amenable to discipline under harsh, tropical conditions.
Emancipation had conferred on the Guianese laborers both physical and occupational mobility. They were recruited, very often on spurious promises, by professional recruiters, largely assisted by paid local agents called “Arkatis” in North India and “Maistris” in South India. This system of recruitment by local agents formed the backbone of all recruiting operations from the inception of the system to its cessation in
