First ever Tsungkamneo Mini Hornbill Festival held from January 15 organised by Yimchunger Tribal Council (YTC) concluded here on Friday at Mündün Yimchunger heritage village. The occasion was graced by president United Sangtam Likhüm Pümji (USLP), T. Seopi Sangtam as tribal guest amidst colourful display of diversity of culture and traditional dances.

Addressing the gathering, T. Seopi Sangtam extended gratitude to YTC for successful organizing Tsungkamneo-cum-Mini Hornbill festival and for inviting USLP to be a part of the event. 

Expressing admiration for tribal culture and tradition, Sangtami expressed hope that the present generation would safeguard the rich and diverse culture saying that Yimchunger culture and tradition is second to none among the Nagas. 

Expounding on the need to have constant cultural exchange, Sangtam said that such gathering of different tribes will go a long way in maintaining peace and brotherhood in the true spirit of the festival. He urged upon the gathering to let past be past and come together with respect and understanding so that any problem or issues that might come along the way can be resolve through peaceful negotiation,  which is the hallmark of their rich tradition. 

The tribal guest also asserted that when leaders lead with integrity and principle, no society can go wrong, therefore he urged upon the leaders to lead society in a right way for the betterment of society. He also called upon the gathering to do away with making individual’s mistake which turns into tribal line stating that time has come for them as a tribal to think beyond one’s own community. 

He further added that the festival will go a long way in building relationship across different layers of society. 

Speaking at the event, Khiamniungan Tribal Council (KTC) president, Ngon Khianiungan appreciated YTC for taking responsibility in safeguarding the culture and tradition. Pointing out that Nagas today do not live by the Christian principle, he advised the gathering to build friendship not only through good times but during difficult time as well. 

The closing day of Tsüngkamneo –cum-Mini Hornbill Festival witnessed cultural presentation from Sangtam cultural troupe, Kemify Yimchunger Cultural club and folk song by Kuthur village.

The programme was led by M. Khalenmew while welcome address was delivered by general secretary YTC, Laji Luyanba and special appearance by S. Leshimong.
