Call for papers: Commemoration of Centennial of Abolition of Indian Indentureship (CCAII) - Fiji 11 November 2016 - January 2020


On 14 May 1879, the "Leonidas", the ship with the first indentured labourers from India, arrived in Fiji.

In 2004, people in Fiji were celebrating 125 years of the arrival of these first 'girmitiyas'.

This site is dedicated to the endurance and the struggles of those people who specifically helped to build the sugar industry here in the Fiji Islands.

What started as a pure celebration site has now developed into probably the most extensive collection of information about the Girmit era in Fiji (some people even write on dissertations using our material). Click here to see the latest additions to this website.

If you have photos or an interesting story, write to information @ and help us to make this website even more informative to all visitors.
