Daga village to host Digaso festival

The Daga village in Southern Highlands Province will host its 09th Kutubu Kundu and Digaso Festival on the 19th to the 21st of September 2019.

With the theme “Strongim na Wok Bung Wantaim”, it calls for the local communities to share ideas, strengthen each other and work together to enhance growth in their communities.

The festival continues to bring hope to more than 40 different indigenous conservation communities from Kutubu, Bosavi and Kikori areas as well those from Hela, Enga and the nearby surrounding LLGs.

Organiser Saina Jeffrey Philyara says since 2011, the Festival has brought together people from more than 40 different indigenous communities as well as tourists from all over the world to experience its exquisite, authentic and fascinating cultural fiesta that is held in this remote part of Papua New Guinea.

She said the Festival provides a forum to highlight the sharing and exchanging of cultural knowledge for their wellbeing, establish deeper understanding and build long term friendship, in the name of preserving and promoting cultural knowledge, and the diverse cultures.
