THE ORIGIN OF

Mashramani

Part of the JAYCEES REPUBLIC / MASHramani celebration in 1970

T

he Jaycees of Linden had, since Guyana became independent in 1966, been arranging and organizing an Independence Carnival in McKenzie. With the advent of Guyana becoming a Republic in February, 1970, the Jaycees of Linden under its President Nobreiga, formed a Jaycees Republic Celebrations Committee. Basil Butcher was selected as Chairman but due to him being selected to tour Australia with the West Indies Cricket Team, Mr. Jim Blackman was appointed as the Deputy to carry on. A broad based committee including resource personnel such as Wordsworth McAndrew, Arthur Seymour and Adrian Thompson, began the organization of the Carnival activities. The search for a name to replace Carnival began and it was suggested by Basil Butcher that an Amerindian name be chosen. This was agreed to and several individuals including Mr. Allan Feidtkou, an Amerindian, were contacted. Mr. Feidtkou held discussion with his grandfather who explained a type of Festival that was held by Amerindians whenever they gather to celebrate a special event. This event he said was like “Muster Many” and sounded in Arawak like Mashramani.

2013 Mashramani Magazine

Steps were taken to confirm this. The help of Mr. Adrian Thompson, who was the District Commissioner of the interior and was considered an authority on Amerindian Affairs, was sought. After checks could not confirm or deny that the Arawak word for the Festival was Mashramani, and in keeping with Mr. Feidtkou’s interpretation it was decided that the Festival would be called Mashramani. On February 23rd, 1970 the festival called “Mashramani” was a huge success with people drawn from all Regions of Guyana to Linden welcoming Guyana’s Republic status with over three days of frolic and fun. After witnessing the massive crowds, glitter and level of competition, Mr. David Singh a Government official held discussion with the Jaycees Committee about bringing the event to Georgetown. Approval was also given by the then President Forbes Burnham for Mash to be the National Event for the Republic Celebration. Mash activities were rotated in Linden, Berbice and Georgetown but due to sponsorship, the Costume Bands contest remained in Georgetown. Note: The Amerindian word is said to be ‘Mashramani’ which means “co-operative effort”.
