Setting Down Roots. Indian Migrants in South Africa.


From the early 1860s until 1911 thousands of Indians were recruited to work on the farms of Natal under the indenture system.During the same period many more came to South Africa as immigrants seeking opportuities as traders and craftsmen.Despite the often harsh and unfamiliar conditions and the increasing hostility of the whites,Indians established themselves not only in Natal,but also in the Transvaal and the Cape,where the discovery of gold and diamonds opened up the prospect of new business and employment in service industries.This book traces the movements of these settlers using available historical records and personal interviews with family decendants.
