In today’s episode, Rajan continues his travels across St Lucia to meet Dr Terencia Joseph, Assistant Professor in History at the University of the Southern Caribbean (USC) in Trinidad and Tobago where she lectures in Caribbean History, European History, Gender History and Ethnic Minorities.

In this remarkable conversation, Dr Terencia shares her research on the indentureship of Indians and migration to the Caribbean islands and tells us of the often unreported brutality of the experience, whilst challenging the many misconceptions we have of their journeys.

Her doctoral thesis is titled ‘A History of Indian Indentured Labour: The Saint Lucia Experience, 1859 to 1903’ and definitely worth a read!

About the Global Indian Series:

My name is Rajan Nazran Chief explorer for the Global Indian Series, the official platform for people of Indian origin (PIO), because let’s face it, we are everywhere!

For almost 15 years we have travelled across the globe covering 58 countries to date whilst exploring the kaleidoscope of our remarkable 50 shades of brown community.

Voyaging to the edges of the Amazon, facing Ebola in West Africa, being held hostage in Eastern Europe, tapping rubber in Malaysia, drinking chai with Heads of State and sharing laughter with local fishermen – I have been there, looking for us!

Our purpose is simple, to build a living encyclopaedia of the human experience of the community and a safe mooring ground for open discussions, whether you are an NRI, Indian Diaspora, person of Indian origin (PIO) or a fan of South Asian anthropology, what we do is bring people and communities together.

We do this by plunging into the human experience of being a person of Indian origin (PIO), taking a second look at the countries we now call home and tackling the conversations we need to know more about.

Through our range of award-winning original content (print, podcasts, events and TV) and fascinating discussions, our impactful stories and platforms have spearheaded national and international conversations that have brought people together.

Our work is featured in global brands including The Indian Express through to the CNBC network.
