Our Mission: 1838-2013 One Hundred & Seventy-Five Years of Indian Arrival in the Americas
The Rajkumari Cultural Center (RCC) is a community-based, multi-arts organization that works to rejuvenate Indo-Caribbean cultural and artistic life to this new American community. Cultural artistic skills and craftsmanship emerge with short-term and year-round interaction in classes and workshops with elder custodians, master-artists, scholars and tradition-bearers working with community youth and families. RCC has been dedicated to revitalizing and nurturing Indo-Caribbean and South Asian cultural arts to build a bridge for an isolated ethnic minority of New Americans to participate in the cultural life of City, State and Nation. RCC preserves, teaches and presents the arts and culture of Indo-Caribbean communities from Guyana, Trinidad, Jamaica and Suriname living in the New York Metropolitan and Tri-state area. RCC works to establish identity and overcome isolation of the Indo-Caribbean people and youth by creating bridges of understanding and appreciation to the wider multi-ethnic and cultural society.
