Where am I from?

Schermafbeelding 2017-12-14 om 19.47.05

I was born in the Netherlands, my parents were born in Suriname but my ancestors were from India. But where is Suriname located and how did the Indians ever get to Suriname? That’s what I’m going to explain in this post.

What is Suriname?

Suriname is a small Caribbean country in South-America, right above Brasil. Suriname could be one of the few countries where different cultures live together, in peace. In fact, Suriname is the only country where a church, a mosque and synagogue are build next to each other.

Suriname is 4 times bigger than the Netherlands but its population is 28 times smaller than the population in the Netherlands, that’s because the majority of Suriname is covered with jungle (the Amazone). Most people live in the north, in particular Suriname’s capital: Paramaribo. Most of Suriname’s tourists are Dutch people but I think anyone in the world would love to see Suriname’s beauty. The mother tongue in Suriname is Dutch, which makes it easy for me (and many Dutch tourists) to communicate with the locals. But how comes the mother tongue in Suriname is Dutch?

History

Suriname has a fierce and long history which isn’t easy to explain to people who have never heard of the country before, but I’ll try to explain it as simple as I can:

The Dutch settled their colonies in Suriname and transported slaves from Africa to work on farms. As soon as they were declared free slaves, they fled into the

The Indians saw this as an opportunity to earn money for their family and return after a while, but none of this was true. The abolition of slavery in Suriname was declared in 1863, but many Indian workers failed to return to India. This is how hinduism started in Suriname.
