With a Suitcase of Saris: From India to Aotearoa - Stories of Pioneer Indian Women (Paperback)

Compiled by Unka, Vasanti

Stories of some of the first Indian Women in New Zealand. Written by their daughters and granddaughters. Our mothers and grandmothers were among the first Indian women to immigrate to New Zealand. They left the warmth of close-knit communities to journey to these chilly, isolated... islands with little but a suitcase of saris. The evocative stories within this book celebrate and honour these women.
