We are hoping to have enough funds by March 1, 2021 and go live in a few weeks after. EDIT: We are extending our goal date to end of June 2021.
As a collective, the two of us work in community with others. We try to work outside of big institutions, so that we have more freedom in choosing the kind of content we produce and doing it with integrity and transparency. The support and donations will go a long way for our community in making sure learning about our histories are more accessible.

Who We Are
Girmit has been told under a Western writing of history for generations, and the Bad Fiji Gyals actively dismantle colonial tactics that reinforce our generational silencing. We fight against any monolithic identity that forces different Girmit descendants, communities and experiences to fit into dominant Indo-Fijian narratives without questioning. We do not engage in romanticising our Girmit histories to further marginalise women, queer, trans, gender non-confirming (GNC) and non-binary (NB) ancestors and descendants.
