The history of Indians in New Zealand

From Upbeat, 1:20 pm on 12 May 2017

Poignant and emotive piece Swabhoomi: Borrowed Earth tells the history of Indian immigrants in New Zealand. Prayas Theatre Company traces the first Indians to arrive in New Zealand, follows their tracks through the generations and finishes today, more than 150 years since the first arrivals. Theatre, puppetry, music, and poetry evoke discussion and debate about what it means to be an Indian Kiwi.
