We have all been there—our Indo Dutch and Indies Dutch culture is strong, but some of it we cannot share with our children and/or grandchildren because it is… in Dutch!
The Indo Project is well aware of this conundrum and hopes to work on translating those sources into English, so that our legacy can be shared rather than vanish from our cultural landscape.
As a pilot program, we hope to start a crowd-funding campaign to translate one book into English and use this as an incentive of many other books (provided we can secure funding) and authors.
So… do you have a favorite book (literature, history etc) that hasn’t been translated yet? Leave your suggestions here, or submit them at inezhollander@theindoproject.
If we can’t get a consensus, we will go by writer: what is your favorite Indo writer? Leave your suggestions here, or submit them at inezhollander@theindoproject.
Thank you for your help!
