With A Suitcase of Saris: From India to Aotearoa Stories of Pioneer Indian Women

Author(s): Compiled by Vasanti Unka

NZ History

Stories of some of the first Indian women in New Zealand. Written by their daughters and granddaughters.

These women left the warmth of their close-knit village communities to live in these faraway, isolated, alien-cultured islands. Many of them came—often with young kids in tow—to live with husbands they barely knew. They arrived with nothing but a suitcase of light cotton saris and a ton courage. 

The evocative stories within this book celebrate and honour these women.
