This is a Closed Practitioner Event

This peer support group is for therapists who may not fully identify as Asian because of their indentured heritage and the culture that was born from it.


This group is for therapists whose heritage is Asian or mixed Asian with indenture ancestry.

The Indian indenture system was active between 1838 to 1917, after the abolition of slavery. The system used Indian labourers to continue wealth productivity in British and other European Occupied Colonies for the metropole. In present day context, people across the globe are bound together by this indenture experience, often sharing language and culture despite being geographically distant from one another.

Here is just a few of the countries Indentured people were taken to:

Fiji, Mauritius, Ceylon, Trinidad, Reunion, Guyana, Malaysia, Uganda, Kenya and South Africa.

This peer support group will provide a space to learn, connect and examine the effects of indentured heritage on the community today.

Scheduled Gatherings:

Date: Sat 28th May, Sat 16th July 2022

Venue: Online via Zoom

Time: 10:00 – 12:00
