Heri heri meal on the Dora Tamanaplein

The dish 'heri heri' dates back to the time of slavery in Suriname. It contains ingredients that enslaved people had at their disposal on the plantations, such as native cassava, sweet potato and nappie (a purple tuber). Together we eat this dish with a charged history and listen to special music.

The square where we eat owes its name to Dora Tamana, a South African anti-apartheid activist. This evening we will tell you more about who she was. How is it possible that her monument disappeared from the square? How do we ensure that she is not forgotten and that the entire neighborhood knows who Dora Tamana was? We would like to hear what you think about this.

Keti Kotie in the OBA

The month of June at the OBA is all about Keti Koti. Every year on July 1, we celebrate the abolition of slavery during Keti Koti, which means 'chains broken'. On July 1, 1883, the Netherlands abolished slavery in Suriname and the other colonies. 45,000 enslaved people were freed. Because it is important that we do not forget this dark page in history, we are organizing a month full of in-depth lectures, films and conversations together with Dynamo and the Municipality of Amsterdam. We will also celebrate culture with music, food and art.
