Paul Leo Discusses the Importance of Culture, Tradition, and Identity

Description: Paul Leo of Senapati, former President of the United Naga Council, shared how important is Culture, tradition and identity. Nagas, we are taught through oral teachings by our parents and a man or woman who knows the story and about anything pertaining to the society. I appreciate the Lamkang student's union for having this program. Today what these elders are performing and sharing the stories and the dresses and ornaments that we are showcasing and owning them. We need to document and make it available to the community not just Lamkang but also to other Nagas in Chandel and in Manipur, Nagaland.We have elders who are willing to transmit their knowledge to the community. Let us also preserve the animals that are around us so as to survive in symbiotic relation with our environment. We can also make resolution to preserve our materials like dresses and other items we used to keep it more authentic and valuable. Example the “Kaang’ that the use in the dance or “Puulraang kooi”.
