Trinidad and Tobago Sango Day Public Holiday Update
 
(Posted on Tuesday, July 10, 2012)

The Orisa community of Trinidad and Tobago has repeated its call for the government of Trinidad and Tobago to declare Sango Day as a new annual non-working public holiday, in recognition of the contribution of the Orisa community to the development of Trinidad and Tobago.

In 1996, Trinidad and Tobago's House of Representatives passed the Order #32 which established Spiritual Baptist/Shouter Liberation Day (March 30) and Indian Arrival Day (May 30) as new annual public holidays (16-Feb-1996).

But, in recent years (23-Apr-2012, 20-Apr-2010 and 29-May-2009), the Indian Arrival Day non-working public holiday is regularly in the news, as a source of controversy, as some politicians now feel that given the multi-racial composition of the country, the government should rename this public holiday from "Indian Arrival Day" to, simply, "Arrival Day".
