Cane Cutter Monument

This sculpture was commissioned by the Natal Cane Growers Association, to be placed at the KwaDukuza library in Stanger. The sculpture commemorates the courage and fore-site of the Indian indentured labourers brought to Natal in 1860, 152 years ago, to work in the cane fields. These men and women built a community from nothing; educating and creating business, while fulfilling their contract to the Cane owners who shipped them to South Africa. The community in Stanger now have a monument to remind and educate the youth of today about their origins.
