False Narratives

The Art Society of Trinidad and Tobago, 4-7 November 2020
“One can accept that all national narratives are cultural fictions and imaginary constructs,
yet believe that not all have the same “truth value.”

- Bridget Brereton, Historian, Contesting the Past: Narratives of Trinidad and Tobago History” Vol.81, Nos.3 and 4, 2007

The British colonial and imperial history…
The “French Creole” narrative… marked by the plantation economy
The Eric Williams’ …. Afro-Creole narrative born in The History of the People of Trinidad and Tobago
“First People” as the nation’s territorial precursors
A.N.R. Robinson’s Tobago narrative
The Afrocentric narrative ...slavery as the formative experience
The Indo-centric narrative as indentured immigrants who triumph
The Chinese…
The Syrian/Lebanese
The Portuguese.

And False Narratives…the unauthorised version… historicising colonial nostalgia from 1900s to present.
