The Lost Tribe of Chetti Melaka – Who Are We?

Description
Trace the fascinating history of the oldest Indian community in Singapore - the Chetti Melaka - in this talk by a leading member of the Peranakan Indians. The Chetti Melaka were South Indian traders who came to Malacca 500 years ago and intermarried with local Chinese and Malays to produce a hybrid Peranakan community, some of whom later moved to Singapore. The speaker will discuss the dilemmas of diasporic identity and suggest solutions to preserve their heritage and legacy.
