Itanagar

The North-East regional edition of Samvaad travelled to Rajiv Gandhi University in Itanagar (Arunachal Pradesh) for yet another one-and-a-half-day conclave that brought together 110 participants from 31 tribes.

As it moved to the hilly terrains of Arunachal, it went further into conversations that revolved around tribal languages, conservation, modern concepts like climate action balanced with the scintillating flavours that emerged from the authentic recipes of three tribes – Galo, Rabha and Bodo.

Symbolising peace and prosperity, a prayer song from the Igu Mishmi tribe opened the session followed by an address by Mr. Jiren Topno, Head, Tribal Cultural Society, CSR, Tata Steel and Professor Saket Kushwaha, Vice-Chancellor, Rajiv Gandhi University.

In the North East, the conclave explored conversations around preservation of tribal languages and solutions to climate change through the indigenous way of life.

The dialogue was rich with innovative initiatives while also highlighting the tussle between some tribal traditions and contemporary views on biodiversity. The participants commented on creating community schools in villages and towns to teach folk songs and converting those into nursery rhymes.
