The above photos are the remaining from my last post on Culture Day Celebration by Primary/Secondary students. The photographs explore culture dances, various tribal attires and local delicacies.

The celebration is aim to educate the student on their culture values and activities, i.e. how to greet elders in their local dialect, how to prepare some of their local dishes, how to dress and know their own cultural dressing and costumes, they are been taught their local traditional songs and dance steps. To crown it all, the students are taught how to construct a hut with bamboos and palm fronts.

All these things are met to inculcate our African traditional values on the young ones because development and the western or foreign influence is eating up most of our traditional values and culture. However just enjoy the photos.

Thanks for stopping by

  1. I second Zee’s comment above – this is a must for the “colourful” challenge. The photographs are Just wonderful to look at – such vibrant colours, and movement – I can almost hear the music and the hubbub of happy voices. And the fabrics! Are they traditional patterns, Aken? Are they manufactured locally?

    As to the idea of Culture Day – on the one hand I’m sad there’s a need to teach the children about their culture at school, but on the other, I’m impressed and happy that the schools are teaching about the different aspects of culture so that it doesn’t die out as many aspects of culture so often do.
