stlucian's are of west african decent nigeria mostly

Jamamica has over 150 thousand indians stlucia only has 3 thousand the majority of the population are from Nigeria

Most Indians from Stlucia are from Calcutta most Africans from there Nigeria all though the stupid rastas there think they are from Ethopia and not the west coast of Africa very funny. Why Dont you write an article on the mis identy of the african population if stlucia which make up 99 percent of the island

There is alot of black on black racism in Stlucia with the emphaise being on how light your skin is.Most Stlucian's do not know of there own origin and will not treat an educated african man half as good as an uneducated english or white man.Its economy is based solely on tourism which is only seasonal

most Stlucian come from West Africa i.e Nigeria the ibo tribe

If you want to research about Indians in the carribean then you have to research trindad guyana most of the populations of stluica is African ie west african indeed there are more indians in Jamaica ie one hundred thousand there isnt even that as a population in stlucia

Curry making in the carribean i.e StLucia and other islands is very different to the traditional Indian curry.Curry originally comes from sib India and they us e more ingredients and herbs compared to the carribean the indian curry is much more tastier you could tate the gala masla hte fresh corriander in StLucia unfortunately even the Inidans there don't know how to cookIT

I know Bob Marley and Marcus Garvey are the most famous Jamaicans is it true that Amy Winehouse is the most famous StLucian and has put Stlucia on the map?

Boriel's were originally paupers living off the land.When the Indian's came to Stlucia they worked for land instead of money so they inherited alot of land.It was only generations down the line that they were able to make use of the land i.e in the sixties when plantations were at their peak and supplying place like the u.k and America.However this has changed and America gets its crops from South America where they can produce more.Since then StLucia is very highly reliant on the tourist trade which is rather backward considering tourism is only seasonal and no develeoped nation relies on tourism as it's numbers source for the economy .So must StLucian;s have to make the money for six months of the year and then save their money for the rest.It is a great pitty that their economy is so backward .

how much of a percentage of Stlucia is of Nigerian descent i heard its quite alot we have a celebration and repartriation of free slaves in Nigeria

Hi very interesting article was told that the Indians in the Stlucia are lost souls and confussed about their identity because in India they would have been Muslims sikhs or Hindus do any of these sub-indian contenant religions exist there

Enjoyed this article im from Pakistan myself are those in Stlucia of Indian descent Muslims or Hindus just wandering

Enjoyed this article what about all the Stlucian's of African descent can we have an article about them

The Boriel's came from Calcutta and changed their name from Boariee in the sixties i guess to a more french name.They were originally cooliees {cheap Indian labour} and were escaping the slums of Calcutta a famous slum city.They would have originally been Hindu's.Once the coolies entered Stlucia they worked alongside freed African slaves however would of got paid in land thus becomming Landowners. I hope this information is of use to you if you want you can go back to the brith and names registrations of StLuica also of the British for those of is colonies to see their name change .I hope this of use to you

im a pakistani in london do anyone of sub-indian decent keep to their religion fo Islam hindu or skihism?

Does anyone in Stlucia speak African Do the Indians know or speak Hindi or prunjabi.

Thats is very true most Stlucians i would say 99 percent are of West African decent but most have lost their history and do not know where they came from.Some have a very misguided sence through the rastifarian scene that origianted from Jamaica that they are from Ethopia .However Ethopian people look totally different to West Africans and are more mixed between Arab and African besides Britain,France never colonised it.Most Stlucians should be taught their history and that they originate from Nigeria,Congo Chad etc

The majority of Stlucians are of African decent.It is widely regarded that they originate from the Ibo tribe in Nigeria. about 90 percent of Stlucians are West African decent 5 percent mixed race 4 percent white and 1 percent Indian.There are very few Indians in Stlucia and the ones that are there are mostly related to each other and live in their own sort of communities.Think we should also have another article on the Carib Indians of the Carribean if they still exist and those of Nigerian decent that are makes up most of the population of Stlucia any thoughts?

Does anyone know how to contact the author of this informative, insightful piece? I have some information for him concerning some of the persons he named in this article.

I enjoyed readings these postings. I am writing a book: "Indian Diasora: Grandparents and Grandparenting" is the tentative title. I will like someone interested in this topic to write a chapter for this book represting the role of diasporic grandparents in families living in St.Lucia Thank you in advance.Please write to me or contact me by e-mail You can find more information about me on Google.

After all these years of being posted online... I only get to discover this blog :s
I could barely remember my great grandfather... used to call him as Daddy Sheriff... and in return he use to call us Baba... May he rest in peace... he worked he's whole life... You will always be remembered and appreciated. R.I.P Daddy Sheriff/

Kimani,

The blog is inactive because all the contributors have moved to different sites. In St. Lucia, we are currently working on Indo-St. Lucian awareness, Primarily focusing on educating St. Lucians especially Indians about our heritage, contributions, and building networking skills among various Indian villages throughout the island. So, the torch is still burning and more are coming to the light.

Thanks.

Hello everyone. I don't know if this blog is dead as I hadn't seen anything posted in a while. Well here goes. I had the most curious experience about two weeks ago when I met a young American Engineering Student of European descent from Missouri. He had been befiended by another American friend of mine from California and invited to join us for drinks at our flat.

I was out when he arrived and as I was entering the building my friend from California sent me a text asking if I wanted to order take out from our favourite Indian take-away. However by that time I was already upstairs and inside. My Californian friend made short introductions and then we began to look at the take away menu. this would begin one of the most perplexing, if disturbing experiences I have had in my life.

when we began to order I chose what I was ordering and then was looking at side dishes and this engineering student proceeded to tell me 'wow you really know your Indian food well' then shocked at why he seemed to be surprised at that i quickly informed him in a reprimanding tone that the Caribbean is indeed over 25% of South Asian origin. I stopped short at telling him of my own ancestry lest I confuse his black/white American brain. Then I calmly began to guide him through the menu, informing him that the roti(just the flat bread) in England is really bad and very dry...at nay rate by Caribbean standards as alot of the food in England is made by Bangladeshi's who are from a different cultural region from the people who are descendants of 'Indians' in tha Caribbean. So much for intellectual discussions about the taste of roti.

But my friends this was only the first affront to my Caribbean identity and my Caribbean people and I consider all Caribbean people my people. Further on in the evening he asked why it was called the Caribbean and I explained to him that it is named so for the Carib or Kalinago people who are the indigenous people of the region and related to the indigenous people of north and south ammerica. I explained that these people were almost completely exterminated by European both in the islands and on the mainland. To whihc I got the most shockign answering fo my life. 'but didn't the europeans put them on reservations because there weren't engough of them'. To which my response was No!!!!! they were exterminated by the Europeans 90% of the peoples of the Americas's were exterminated by Eruopeans. My God!!! Is this the rubbish that passes for history in American highschools.

However my sister's stories should have better informed my interactions with Americans. She is an English tutor and postgraduate student in English at Purdue University and had previously gone to university in Oklahoma. She explained to me that history books in Oklahoma told students that Africans came to the Americas voluntarily. poppycock...hogwash

so I guess I should not have expected any different. The lesson is for Caribbean people that not everyone is as historically aware as we are.

HI ALL,
I JUST CAME BACK FROM A TOUR OF ''MOTHER INDIA''
I HAPPENED ON THIS SITE ACCIDENTALLY AS MY DAUGHTER,
MARIA GHIRAWOO TYPED IN A TITLE REARCH ''GHIRAWOO''.
ALL I CAN TELL YOU AND ADVISE YOU ALL RIGHT NOW, IS TO
STOP THE FIGHTING! WE ONLY DEMONSTRATE THE FRUSTRATIONS
DEPRESSIONS;AND RACIST SENTIMENTS LEFT US BY THESE WICKED AND GREEDY EUROPEANS WHO HAVE EXPLOITED OUR FOR-
PARENTS FOR TIME IMMEMORIAL.
SO BY FIGHTING AMOUNGING OURSELVES WE ARE STILL LETTING THEM WIN AND OPPRESS US AS THEY DID OUR FOR-
FATHERS, THOUGH WE ARE BORN IN A FREE AND MODERN AGE!
IN INDIA AS WELL AS IN AFRICA, TO THIS DAY, WE CAN STILL SEE THE FRIENDLINESS OF THESE INDIGENOUS PEOPLES
THAT IS WHY THE GREEDY EUROPEANS COULD WALK RIGHT IN TO
THESE COUNTRIES; CULTURES AND KIND CIVILIZATIONS AND
JUST TAKE OVER; ABUSE AND RAPE THESE COUNTRIES AS THEY
FORCEFULLY STOLE EVERYTHING FROM THESE GREAT CIVILIZATIONS- ESPECIALLY THERE PEOPLE!
SO PLEASE STOP THE FIGHTING!!!

THANK YOU.
GOD IS LOVE.
PETER[BENNY]GHIRAWOO
