The Governor of Arunachal Pradesh Brig (Dr) BD Mishra (Retd) has extended his heartiest greetings to each and every citizen of the State on the auspicious occasion of Dree, the agricultural festival of Apatani Tribe.
In his message, the Governor said that the Dree festival is the traditional identity of the Apatani tribe, which they have proudly and conscientiously preserved since time immemorial. Celebration of the indigenous festivals helps the preservation, development and transition of the ancestral values and ethnic identity to future generations. Continued observance of these festivals is closely connected with the beliefs, rites, social acceptances and peace promoting practices. It, therefore, devolves on us, the people of the State to stay informed and involved in protecting our culture and heritage through these festive celebrations, he said.
May the warmth and splendour of Dree, bring happiness and amity to all, the Governor wished in his message.
