DIMAPUR — The advisor of Information and Public Relations and Soil and Water Conservation, Imkong L Imchen, hosted the Moatsü festival in Kohima on May 1. The celebrations was organised by Mangmetong SensoTelongjem Kohima.

Speaking at the Moatsü celebrations, Imchen said that Nagas as a tribal society has lots of rituals and beliefs, which in recent times have trickled down to just celebration of one or two major festivals of each tribe. He, however, pointed out that it was important to celebrate and exhibit cultural traits so as to ensure that its unique culture and traditions are not lost.

He further added that in a city like Kohima, which is inhabited by various tribes, the beauty of the Naga society can be witnessed through different tribes exhibiting and showcasing their own unique culture and tradition to one another and co-existing in harmony, stated a DIPR report.

Imchen concluded by saying that it should be the responsibility of every Naga to exhibit and practice their rich cultural heritage and ensure that it is preserved in the right way for years to come.

The advisor of Law and Justice and Land Revenue, TN Mannen, speaking on behalf of the Ao legislators, thanked the Mangmetong Senso Telongjem Kohima and his co-legislator Imkong L Imchen for organising and hosting the Moatsü celebrations for the year 2024.

He shared in brief the significance of the Moatsü festival in today’s society stating that the festivals are the bedrock of culture and traditions. Mannen also stated that celebration of festivals was a social necessity and urged all to strive towards unity and lead disciplined life. 

Traditional songs and dances were presented by various groups.

N Meren, president of Mangmetong Senso Telongjem Kohima, welcomed the guests and formally declared the Moatsü celebrations opened, while Imnameren Imchen pronounced the vote of thanks.
