Nuga Gama at Cinnamon Grand Hotel paid tribute to the indigenous tribes of the world as part of its celebration of International World Indigenous People’s Day.
The occasion is a bid to create awareness and understanding of indigenous tribes around the world. A group of 30 children selected by the Funday Times from different parts of the country, were given the chance to attend a series of workshops on the culture of indigenous people.
During the workshops a group of dancers of the Werapitiya Dance Troupe entertained the audience with a traditional Veddah song and dance.
Three members of the National Archery Team, representing the Colombo Archery School, conducted a session on archery, giving each child several chances at hitting a target.
