Abstract

The importation of Indian indentured labour into Trinidad covers the period of 1845 to 1917.

Trinidad had, in the century before Indian indentured labour, changed from a peasant society to a plantation economy based on sugar, from a country of few settlers or slaves to a society with settlers drawn principally from French settlers and a slave population drawn directly from Africa or from other Caribbean islands. It had changed colonial hands from Spain to Britain.
