Gulmarg, July 9: The “National Tribal Festival” ended today at the world-famous tourist town Gulmarg, where it took place over two days.

Joint Secretary of the Union Ministry of Tribal Affairs, Dr. Naval Jit Kapoor, Secretary of the Union Ministry of Tribal Affairs, Dr. Shahid Iqbal Choudhary, senior officers of Tribal Welfare departments from different states of the country, officers and officials of TRIFED, and a large number of locals attended the event’s closing ceremony.


In his closing comments at the event, Dr. Shahid Iqbal Choudhary thanked all the involved groups, workers, and attendees for being so excited about the fair and helping to make it a success. He talked about how important it is to keep and promote tribe cultures because they are an important part of our country’s history. “It reminds us of the richness and variety of our country’s tribal landscape,” Dr. Shahid said.

A lot of native stars from different parts of the country, as well as local artists, showed off their skills at the two-day event in front of a huge crowd. Tribal artists and dancers put on exciting shows that left the crowd spellbound.

At the event, people from all walks of life came together to celebrate ethnic variety and history in a big way. Tribal customs, arts, music, and delicious foods were also on display at the event.

With help from the Ministry of Tribal Affairs, the National Tribal Festival brought together people from more than 10 states and territories. This gave tribal groups a chance to share their rich traditional history. The goal of the event was to help people understand, accept, and appreciate native practises and ways of life.

During the whole event, people were surrounded by a lively mix of tribal art. Traditional dances, mesmerising music, and other acts brought the audience into the magical worlds of the groups that took part.

Artisans and craftspeople from Arunachal Pradesh, Orissa, Madhya Pradesh, Ladakh, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, and other States and Union Territories (UTs) like Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, etc. showed off their intricate work, giving visitors a chance to see and buy unique, culturally significant items.

During the fair, TRIFED also made a big push to get the craftspeople of Jammu and Kashmir on board. Many of them came to the exhibition and showed off their work.

The best part of the National tribe Festival was the cultural exchange scheme, where people could talk to tribe leaders in person. These meetings helped people learn more about the groups’ habits, beliefs, and rituals, which helped them understand and appreciate other cultures.
