In her master thesis published in 2010 Dutch scholar Nora Iburg argues that for third-generation Indos in the Netherlands there is no need to define the essence of a common Indo group identity and concludes that for them there is in fact no true essence of Indo identity except for its’ hybrid nature.
’Third generation Indos in the Netherlands are nomadic thinkers, concentrating on a consciousness (and evolution) of Indo identity […], in stead of the illusion that the essence of Indo identity can be determined. This nomadic consciousness enables them to re-think and re-invent static categories. Nomadism gives its subject energy to fade out borders without burning bridges.’
However to be able to do this there can not be disregard of history and she mentions the re-construction of family history as the first step.
'Only by doing justice to history and acknowledging the memories and emotions of the first generation, the next generations will be able to construct their own identities.'
