Cultural Heritage Vital

Share the News

The Western province community in Port Moresby gathered at the Constitution Park on Saturday to showcase and celebrate their cultural heritage in a simple but entertaining day.

Like all native Papua New Guineans, the people of Western Province have realised the importance of preserving their cultural heritage, values and traditions with a sense of pride that inspires their younger generation to embrace whole heartedly.

In other parts of the world cultural heritage is usually thought of as a collection of material things like monuments, sculptures and other artefacts but for Papua New Guineans, cultural heritage really entails more than that.

It is a mixture of culture dong, dance and decoration that all come together to tell a story.

Also on Saturday, the Northern province also had their provincial day celebrated with a huge turn-out.

The Sir John Guise avenue packed with painted faces and the famous Oro tapa designs on woven bags and T-shirts.

As the sun begins to set, the traditional dances from various parts of the province sang and danced to the beat of the Kundu drum.
