Trinidad and Tobago Celebrates 52nd Anniversary of Independence

On behalf of The Caribbean American Heritage Foundation of Texas (CAHFT), the Caribbean Community in Houston and in Texas, our Board of Directors, members and volunteers, we wish the twin island nation of The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago a Happy 52nd Anniversary of your Independence.  We in particular, send warm greetings to The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago Association of Texas as they prepare for the Anniversary Gala to be held on September 13, 2014 and for all that you do to promote Trinidad and Tobago in Houston and Texas, and for all the positive measureable contributions you make to the Caribbean Community.

The Trinidad and Tobago community in Houston, Texas is strong with so many members of their community making positive, visible contributions to the Caribbean Community in Houston, and Texas, through scholarships, monthly events such as Soca Passion and our annual Caribbean Carnival Festival brought to you by Houston Caribbean Festival…just to name a few.  Both the Trinidad and Tobago Men’s and Women’s National Soccer teams have played matches in Houston, Texas during the 2013-2014 season.

Trinidad and Tobago Celebrates 52nd Anniversary of Independence 

The island of Trinidad was a Spanish colony from the arrival of Christopher Columbus in 1498 to the capitulation of the Spanish Governor, Don José Maria Chacón, on the arrival of a British fleet of 18 warships on 18 February 1797.  During the same period, the island of Tobago changed hands among Spanish, British, French, Dutch and Courlander colonizers. Trinidad and Tobago (remaining separate until 1889) were ceded to Britain in 1802 under the Treaty of Amiens. The country Trinidad and Tobago obtained independence in 1962, becoming a republic in 1976.   Unlike most of the English-speaking Caribbean, the country's economy is primarily industrial, with an emphasis on petroleum and petrochemicals. The country is also one of the wealthiest in the Caribbean, due its large reserves of oil and gas.  Trinidad and Tobago is known for its Carnival and is the birthplace of steelpan, limbo, and the music styles of calypso, soca and chutney.


We thank The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago Association of Texas for your outstanding contributions to both the Caribbean Community and the community in Houston and Texas on the whole.  Your efforts and contributions do not go unnoticed and as a community we look forward in ways to continue to build and strengthen the Caribbean Community for many many years to come. 


Did you know that there are seven Caribbean Consulates in Houston?

Houston has the third-largest consular corps (Houston Consular Corps - Global Houston) in the nation after New York and Los Angeles. There are approximately 94 consulates in Houston, six of which are from Caribbean Nations. Consular officials develop economic, commercial, scientific and cultural relations between the countries they represent and the area in which they serve. An important function of a consulate is to help to increase commerce – trade, technology transfer and investments – both ways. Consular officials are a source of information on the economy, society, culture and tourism of the countries they represent.
