Igbo Union Finland Ry Projects Annual New Yam Festival

Annual New Yam Festival

Project 3: The New Yam Festival

The annual Igbo New Yam Festival provides numerous opportunities for the Igbo culture to be displayed in Finland. As part of this initiative, the festival will conduct a one-week programme that will culminate in the festival itself. The week will include seminars, cultural workshops, exhibitions of Igbo arts and crafts, screenings of Igbo films, and Igbo cultural dance performances. The Festival will showcase the kola-nut rites, in which we call on “Chukwuabiama” (Most High God) alongside our great-grandfathers in order to bless the kola nut prior to eating it. Additionally, there are various cultural dancing performances and the actual rites of cutting the new yam harvest to declare the beginning of eating new yam.

One thought on “Annual New Yam Festival”

  1. I was thinking how on earth are people that live in Finland thinking as though they live in the zoological republic? How could you write such a letter? To be noticed? How much did they give you? I could not believe such could happen amongst those living in diaspora.

    Am so ashamed of hog guys. I am Nmecha Ogbu from Abiriba, living in London Uk.

    What if you guys think the presidency to the southeast could offer the Igbos if at all it is given to them? I want to ask you, if at all he did well to change Nigeria, after his 4 or 8 years, what will be the fate of Nigeria from then?

    Will you prefer Nigeria to Biafra? Do you know the problem of Nigeria? You must know the problem before looking for the problem, don’t you know nothing comes free??
    Everyone has a role to play, your role is not to attack but to support in any means you can, igbos don’t have a place in Nigeria and can’t flourish there, have you noticed that every country moved forward except Nigeria? Most of you are above 40 years, have you noticed that the 80s and 90s even the early and late 2000 were better than these years? It will continue that way unless something drastic is done.
    Attacking Simon means you are ignorant, if prter Obi use the effort he is using in the election, on biagra restoration, we won’t be where we are now, don’t you know he was sent? Even all the endorsements coming here and there are just to strengthen one Nigeria, you should know better than that.

    You can’t make peace with these fulanis, they are not here for peace but to kill us.

    People like you are the reason they are still in Nigeria.

    If you know what is good for you, you should rewrite what you had written on the press, your shames are shaming us.

    The same Obasanjo that endorsed him was the last person that led the last troop to kill our people, he was the one I read before they said “let the Biafrans go” all these are planned job to keep you in Nigeria, they want you to endorse one Nigeria, to validate it.
