    What is “Dougla”?

      • alicemedina says:

        Dougla is just a word used to describe persons of mixed Indian and African ancestry in the Caribbean. It’s not specific to Trinidadians, it’s also used frequently in Guyana and Suriname. There are also Jamaican Douglas as well as Bajan, Grenadian, Guyanese, Surinamese, Aruban and Haitian Douglas.
