KOHIMA — In a bid to promote and preserve the rich Naga culture and tradition, Lidi Kro-u Society, in collaboration with the department of Employment, Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, organised a 12-day training on weaving and bamboo craft at Biekrazou in Kohima village on the theme “Enhancing livelihood through traditional skills.”

The 12-day training which began on March 11 culminated on March 23.

A total of 80 participants including 40 girls and 40 boys were trained on bamboo craft and weaving. Among the trainees were school students from CC School, Khedi Baptist School and Christ King Higher Secondary School.

The organisers selected eight best trainees – four students each from CC School and Khedi Baptist School. On their selection, they were provided with bamboo craft making tools for boys and weaving tools for girls.

It is worth mentioning that the Lidi Kro-u Society, in a bid to promote and preserve the rich Naga culture and tradition, has been conducting similar trainings to the youth since 2019. Their earlier trainings to the youth were on fast-disappearing values and practices such as headgear weaving, threshing and winnowing of rice grains, folk story narration, bamboo basket making etc.

The Society’s president, Neisakuonuo Solo, had on several occasions, emphasised that their main focus was to promote the rich cultural heritage and traditions through imparting the values and skills of the Naga tradition so that the upcoming generation can benefit from it and continue to pass it down to the next generation.
