Moses Nagamootoo

Moses Nagamootoo was born in Whim Village on the Corentyne, Guyana. His parents were first generation Guyana-born offspring of Indian immigrants who came from Madras. Whim was a predominantly Madrasi village and Moses Nagamootoo grew up in a community with its own traditions of Kali-mai worship, styles of drumming and food preferences which made them distinct from the majority of Indo-Guyanese whose ancestors came from North India. His Hendree’s Cure: Scenes from Madrasi Life in a New World (Peepal Tree, 2000), a work of documentary fiction, is a libation to the Madrasi world of his youth.
