Assam: CM asks for Preservation & Development of Tribal Art, Culture


Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma, the chief minister of Assam, asked people to take the lead in preserving and promoting tribal art and culture on Friday. He made the statement while attending the opening ceremony of the Janajati Faith & Culture Protection Forum’s three-day conference of tribal leaders from the North East, titled “Voice of the North East,” held at Rani Lakshmi Bai National Institute of Physical Education, Tepesia in Sonapur, on the outskirts of Guwahati.

Tribal art and culture has profoundly enhanced Indian culture and civilisation, according to the Chief Minister, and it is critical to maintain, preserve, and develop tribal art and culture. He stated that, in addition to tribal people, non-tribals must take the lead in its promotion, and that the state government will continue to provide all necessary assistance in this respect.

Sarma went on to say that the state government formed a new department called “Indigenous Faith & Culture” in recognition of the importance of tribal art, culture, faith, customs, and traditions in the development of India’s civilisation. He went on to say that the department had been allocated 100 crore in the current budget, and that the government planned to expand the budget allocation to 500 crore over the following five years.
