The interviews will be released over the next three weeks.

Meanwhile the Foundation says it will also host the re-enactment of the arrival of Indians on Wednesday June 1st, which marks the 161st anniversary of the arrival of 2,474 Indians from India to SVG during the years 1861 to 1880.

The re-enactment has not been staged for the past two years, due to the Covid 19 Pandemic.
