Recently a special committee lead by former Dutch Education minister Jet Bussemaker, stated that we should consider no longer using the terms Indisch and ‘former Dutch East Indies’. This statement prompted Indo-Dutch Stephen Goedhart, who lives in Taiwan, to write the following argument against the committees findings.
For the first time, the Holland Festival in Long Beach and the annual Kingsday Celebration combined forces and got together in Gemmrig Park for a great Indo/orange celebration. Indo International was there.
Twice a year the Indos in San Diego get together for a kumpulan. This time they met up in the bay area, for a potluck picknick.
Ever since the word Indo has existed, it raises questions and sparks discussion.
