Every year on the 1st of July, the Keti Koti Festival takes place in various Dutch cities and former Dutch colonies. Keti Koti comes from the Surinamese language Sranantongo (a creole language) and can be translated into ‘Broken Chains’ or ‘break the chains’. Keti Koti commemorates the abolition of Slavery in Dutch colonies in 1863. However, SlaverySlavery continued for many years after 1863.
