Quotable Quotes re Immigrants in Wellington


In terms of New Zealand as an immigrant nation,

“Through song and dance these immigrant communities are able to perform their cultural identity”




Premanand Insbasekran, a chef from southern India, who has lived in Wellington for four years said,


“It is a great chance to unite different nationalities. It’s good entertainment and tells us about the Indian culture so others are able to know. It makes unity.”




Diwali has emerged over the past three years in Auckland and Wellington as a media event with several functions specific to its local context, including the celebration of difference and the consumption of ethnicity. Such spectacles might be likened to what Hall refers to as a "cultural supermarket", a place where one is "confronted by a range of different identities" which are celebrated and even consumed like many other products.




The Asia:NZ Diwali Festival of Lights gives Wellington and Auckland Indian communities the opportunity to share this much-loved cultural tradition with other New Zealanders and their families. This event not only celebrates the traditions of Diwali, but is also a celebration of Indian culture




The festival has been transformed from its traditional context and might be viewed as creating culture and a new type of tradition in New Zealand.




A study of Diwali in New Zealand helps portray culture creation and the construction of place, identity and community for many New Zealanders.
