National Archives of Trinidad and Tobago (NATT) 

INDIAN ARRIVAL DAY 2010 Commemoration Programme 

NATT successfully hosted two lectures and exhibits in commemoration of the East Indian Immigrants who came to Trinidad over 150 years ago. The lectures and exhibits took place in two locations San Fernando and Waterloo. 

The exhibit was a historical description of East Indian Indentureship in Trinidad and featured copies of original records such as ship and general registers. The lectures were done by Dr. Radica Mahase and Mr. Shamsu Deen. 

Dr. Mahase presented on the means through which Indian Indentured workers resisted the poor working conditions they encountered. Mr. Deen discusses the uses and practice of genealogy with special reference to East Indian genealogy in Trinidad. 

Students, teachers and members of the public attended these events.
