In 1769, the first two Indians to set foot in Aotearoa came ashore.
This little known fact - along with many others – comes to light in a new book on the 250-year history of Indians to New Zealand and Australia, which traces the diaspora from its earliest days until now.
“The very first Indians to set foot on Aotearoa were not settlers - but sailors,” says SehkarBandyopadhyay, Professor of Asian History at Victoria University of Wellington.
Among the sailors were two Muslims, Mahmud Qasim and Nasrin, who boarded the French ship Saint Jean Baptiste, captained by Jean Francois Marie de Surville, at the French colony of Pondicherry, India.
