As seen on NALIS:
"Indian Arrival Day is a holiday celebrated on various days in the nations of the Caribbean and the island nation of Mauritius, usually commemorating the arrival of people from the Indian subcontinent to that nation as indentured labour brought by British colonial authorities and their agents."
We signify this day with a holiday because it is an enormous event in the history of our great nation. The East Indian community has been cerebrating this day for years in Trinidad and Tobago, however, it was only since 1994 that the entire country was given the opportunity to unite with them when it was made a public holiday.
There are reenactments of the arrival of the Fatel Razack at various beaches throughout Trinidad and Tobago. Also, dance, music and events to honor exceptional members of the community for their contributions to society.
