Indigenous Faith Day greetings

ITANAGAR, Nov 30: Arunachal Pradesh Governor Dr B D Mishra and Chief Minister Pema Khandu have extended their warm greetings to the indigenous faith followers of the state on the occasion of Indigenous Faith Day.
In his message, the Governor said that the native people of Arunachal Pradesh follow their respective indigenous belief, faith, cultures, customs and traditions. Nature has blessed these people with grace and sobriety. Despite the geographical isolation, the indigenous faith tribes, who are ethnically so very similar, have kept themselves well knit and integrated.
“I am delighted to find that the Indigenous Faith Day is being observed as a reverence to the dignity of the individuals all over the state of Arunachal Pradesh. I am confident that this celebration will strengthen the spirit of humanism, tolerance, communal harmony and reinforce the concept of unity in diversity of the Nation”, the Governor wished.
In a message, the Chief Minister emphasized on the significance of the Indigenous Faith Movement, particularly under the aegis of the Indigenous Faith and Cultural Society of Arunachal Pradesh (IFCSAP), that has successfully preserved and maintained the traditional customs and faiths of the indigenous tribes of the state in the age of rapid globalization.
“Ours is a distinct state with several tribes and communities residing side by side for ages and maintaining their own unique indigenous culture and traditions. Despite our varied diversity, we as Arunachalees are united and take pride in our indigenous cultural heritage. This cultural mosaic has to be maintained, preserved and propagated at all costs while keeping intact our unity in diversity,” the Chief Minister added.
