Governor extends best wishes and festival greetings on the occasion of Dree
Itanagar, July 5: Arunachal Pradesh Governor Gen JJ Singh has extended best wishes and festival greetings on the occasion of Dree and expressed his hope that the festival will usher happiness and prosperity.
In his festival message, Gen Singh said, celebration of the indigenous festivals helps the preservation, development and transition of the ancestral values and ethnic identity to future generations. Their continued existence and practice are closely connected to their own faith, cultural patterns, social institutions and legal systems.
Calling upon the people of the State to stay informed and involved in protecting their rights and their culture, he said first step towards the endeavour is to observed festivals and annual rituals. The Dree festival as such is the cultural identity of the Apatani tribe, which they have proudly and jealously preserved since time immemorial, he added.
