Location: Arima Town Hall

This event is in the past.

You are cordially invited to a symposium on the inspirational Arima patriot FEM Hosein (1882-1936), successful lawyer, Mayor of Arima, Member of the Legislative Council , defender of human and civil rights for descendants of Indians in the immediate post-indenture period, and champion of the first peoples.

The keynote speaker is Professor Brinsley Samaroo

Notes on FEM based on information provided by Prof Samaroo:
Francis Evelyn Mohammed Hosein (1882-1936) was a successful lawyer and advocate of human and civil rights for descendants of Indians in North and South Trinidad in the early post-indenture period when there were too many barriers to their participation in the society.

He spoke out on the need for reform of the Crown Colony system and as an Arimian he took a strong interest in the Borough Council, serving as Mayor from 1929 to 1931. He was also elected to the Legislative Council and served as representative for St George from 1928 to 1933.

Hosein’s deep concern for our First Peoples. He encouraged their annual celebrations. In his play of 1931, ‘Hyarima and the Saints’ he wrote about their historic struggles against the Spanish, the Arena clash and their rightful place in the national building.

If enough people indicate willingness to pay their share of the cost for a return maxi to Arima we can try to make arrangements. Please email commitments to
