Hindu Trinidad: Religion, Ethnicity and Socio-economic Change

Front Cover
Macmillan Caribbean, 1992 - East Indian - 272 pages
Since originally migrating as indentured labourers from throughout India in the 19th and early 20th centuries, Hindu Indians have dominated the agricultural sector and emerged as the prominent force of political opposition in Trinidad and Tobago. Their unique cultural and religious practices - the focus of strong ethnic sentiments - have developed in relation to historical conditions in Trinidad, marked by socio-economic constraints, intra-communal controversies, and inter-ethnic tensions.
