The article presents the outcome of five field trips to Tanzania undertaken in 2010–2012 in order to conduct anthropological research among the Indian diaspora members. The Indian diaspora is a closed and self-sustaining yet not internally homogeneous system. The immigrants from India identify them-selves as an independent community neighboring with the local African populations. The research results testify to the continued preservation and maintenance of traditional culture among the Indian diaspora members.
