The Upper East Regional Director of the Centre for National Culture, Pamphilio Kuubesingn, has indicated that one of the practical ways indigenous culture can be preserved is through the collective efforts of stakeholders and policy implementers.
Mr. Kuubesingn opined that attitudes and behaviours among educated natives, stakeholders, and industrial players ought to be redirected and rethought toward preserving and harnessing the culture in the region.
“For instance, if we all agreed that certain practises ought to be taken away, then why can’t we do the same and promote and harness the good ones that will and can speak for us and our yet unborn generation? That is why I’m always talking to the chiefs and relevant stakeholders to see how we can redefine who we are and preserve and improve the culture we have.”
He stressed that “if industrial players, especially various chiefs and opinion leaders, fail to redefine and rethink how to harness and promote their culture, then our children yet unborn will question us someday.”
Mr. Kuubesingn was speaking on the Daybreak Upper East show on A1 Radio regarding the need to promote the cultural heritage of the people.
Commending the radio station for its continuous efforts to promote the cultural heritage in the region, Mr. Kuubesingn however assured the public, chiefs, and other partners with similar interests of his outfit’s readiness for the course.
“My outfit cannot do it alone, but with collective efforts by all and sundry, we can harness and promote the culture the way we want it to be in this region.”
