Roing, May 30: The RIWATCH Centre for Mother Languages (RCML), under the auspices of the Research Institute of World’s Ancient Traditions Cultures and Heritage (RIWATCH), announced the launch of the Folktale Writing Competition 2024. This initiative aligns with RCML's mission to promote and revitalize the native languages and cultures of Arunachal Pradesh.
Arunachal Pradesh boasts a rich heritage of oral narratives, cherished and passed down through generations from time immemorial. Folktales serve as vital conduits for the transmission of traditional knowledge, moral values, and the oral history of migrations and settlements. These stories, deeply entrenched in tribal worldviews, encompass themes of nature, supernatural beings, and animals, offering insights into the mysteries of the world.
Recognizing the significance of preserving these oral traditions in written form, the Folktale Writing Competition 2024 aims to encourage native speakers to write their folktales or myths in their mother/native languages followed by translation in English. Participants from all ethnic communities of Arunachal Pradesh are invited to participate, with no age or word limit restrictions.
