Historical and Cultural Significance of the Moatsu Festival

The Moatsu Festival has its roots in the Ao Naga tribe’s agricultural practices and beliefs. It is named after the Moatsu plant, which is found in abundance during this time of the year. Historically, the festival served as a way to express gratitude to the deities for a bountiful harvest, as well as to seek blessings for the upcoming farming season. It was also a time for the Ao people to gather, share stories, perform traditional dances and songs, and engage in various community activities.

Preservation of Cultural Heritage – Moatsu Festival 

The Moatsu Festival plays a vital role in preserving the cultural heritage of the Ao Naga tribe. It allows the younger generation to learn about their traditions, customs, and history through firsthand experiences. The elders pass down knowledge, stories, and skills to the youth, ensuring the continuity of the tribe’s unique identity.
