SAYO, SASU organise expedition day at Dzükou

Southern Angami Youth Organization (SAYO) and Southern Angami Students Union (SASU) ogranised “Southern Angami Dzükou Expedition Day” on July 9 at Dzükou Valley.
In a press release, SAYO information & publicity secretary informed that advisor for Technical Education & Elections, Medo Yhokha in his speech said viewing Dzükou Valley through the lens of its landscape alone was not enough.
He pointed out that there were important issues that required in-depth retrospection and that, dwelling on the history of the past alone should not be enough.
The advisor said the greatest challenge that lie ahead of the community was to draw a roadmap of how Southern Angamis will sustain the value of Dzükou.
He challenged and called on the community to ponder how to patent the rights and ownership of Dzükou Valley.
In his speech, advisor for Youth Resources & Sports, Er. Zale Neikha said such programme has boosted the relationship of Southern Angami villages.
Such venture, he said, should be confined in their region alone.
In this regard, he encouraged other tribes and groups to undertake similar missions.
Observing that flora in the valley was decreasing or not blooming in abundance unlike the past, the advisor suggested that the age-old techniques be revived or to explore other means.
Delivering short speeches, Southern Angami Public Organisation (SAPO) president, Kevipodi Sophie spoke on how Dzükou Valley and Kezoltsa were common properties of the Southern Angami as recognised by elders since time immemorial.
He asked the Southern Angamis to be polite to outsiders so that they could earn credibility and respect and at the same time enable people to yield a sense of conservation and responsibility for the valley while also enhancing economy.
SAYO president, Metekhrielie Mejura said the programme brought all frontal leaders and public of Southern Angami to Dzükou and described it as a first of its kind for the people of the region.
Earlier, Southern Angami Culture Society (SACS) presented a folk song and Seyiekolie Beio presented song while forest ranger, Forest department, Keneikrul Noswe delivered a speech.
The programme was attended by over 250 people from Southern Angami villages and frontal organisations.
