Ah We Ting – Mashramani – by Errol Ross Brewster

Ah We Ting – Mashramani

Ah We Ting is a short feature looking back over time at the celebrations of Mashramani – a Guyanese festival brought into being by the political directorate at the time of the establishment of Republican status to nurture and develop the fusing of the diverse cultural strains of the people. The name is taken from the Lokono word Mashramehi which means celebration after successful cooperative work, something which continues to elude the nation as a whole but which hardly, if at all, dampens the festivities. (Errol Ross Brewster).
