Southern Angami Students’ Union (SASU) conducted its 70th annual literary-cum-cultural day under the theme “Indiginization” at Sakhabama village on Saturday. 
Speaking on the occasion, Daso Paphino said that many indigenous people in the world today suffered from the loss of their culture, and language due to the coming of Christianity and were unfortunate to have had missionaries imposed their western culture and called it a Christian way of life on the people they went to convert.
He however said that “one of the reasons of how, we Nagas managed to keep many of our forefather’s traditions is due to the similarity of our cultural and traditional heritage with the practices of the old testament, and the religious beliefs of the Jewish people.”
Stating that Nagas were at a crossroad, he said some feel very privileged and blessed to see development taking place rapidly in all forms and shapes, whereas some feel unsettled because of the risk of losing one’s language, traditional habits and even culture.
On language, the speaker expounded on the importance of speaking “mother tongue fluently and without shame” and on music he said that one must preserve traditional music while creating new music. 
Earlier, SASU president Virato Naleo delivered the presidential address. The event featured cultural competitions like tati (duet), war cry, folktale and other literary competitions like essay, story writing, painting and photography based on the theme. Onokü was adjudged Mr. SASU and Diezeno Chüzho as Miss SASU.
