On April 27, 2013, The Indo Project held its third Florida Kumpulan. In excess of 100 people attended. Needless to say, there was lots of good food, music, dancing and getting re-acquainted with old friends. Drawing prizes included spekkoek, Bols jenever and several baskets filled with Dutch and Indo goodies, such as drop, hagelslag, bumbu bumbu and other delicious things.
Special guests included Rene Creutzberg (of De Indo fame) and his wife, as well as Erica Bürer and her father from Holland. Erica is married to and Indo and is working on a book that will feature portraits of older Indos . While in Florida, Erica interviewed and made portraits of a number of people. Rene is responsible for De Indo magazine, a monthly edition with subscribers all over the world. Articles are in both Dutch and English. For further information on “De Indo” please visit firstname.lastname@example.org or www.deindo.com Attendees came from as far as California, Texas, New Jersey and Maryland. We are very fortunate in that The Indo Project is becoming better known and that we are reaching more Indos every day so that we can “honor our past and preserve the future.”
The next Florida event will take place in November 2013. For those of you who live in the North-East, there is an Indo gathering scheduled for September 7th; the 5th annual Indo Heritage event in New York.
