This chapter focuses on the British colonization of the Hadrami homeland. The British Empire colonized the Hadrami homeland in 1937 by establishing indirect rule with the installation of a Resident Advisor by treaty. It was the last colony acquired by Britain and its story can also be told as a story of diasporic returns. The chapter describes events of this final colonization and their telling by the principal actors, English and Hadrami. It argues that the world in which diasporic return became imperial colonization is not entirely different from that of today, and the historical controversies it gave rise to among diasporic Hadramis continue to inform debates in the present.

Keywords:   Hadrami homeland, British colonization, indirect rule, diasporic returns, imperial colonization
