Nonindentured Indian Migration to the Caribbean since World War II

Nonindentured Indian Migration to the Caribbean since World War II

(p.108) Chapter Six Nonindentured Indian Migration to the Caribbean since World War II
The Indian Caribbean

This chapter looks at the movement of non-resident Indians from India to the Caribbean after the Second World War. These Indians arrived in the Caribbean on their own volition. The focus will be on their movement to Guyana, Trinidad, and Suriname, mainly to compare and contrast their movement and settlement with that of former indentured Indians. Although they make up a significant population and have meaningful connections with the Indian diplomatic community in Guyana, Trinidad, and Suriname, they are not visible in these countries because they tend to blend with the majority Indian population. They are very noticeable in the predominantly African Caribbean islands. The chapter then traces the arrival of these recent migrants and assesses what they are doing in the Caribbean as well as their relationships with descendants of indentured Indians and the wider Caribbean ethnic community.
