ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – The second annual Tamasha La Wa Africa allowed members of the Abilene community to learn more about African history and culture.
To represent what they want to focus on, this year’s theme is “Pamoja” which translates to “community together”.
From headgear to carrying buckets of water, to carvings representing their culture, people were able to see what life is like in Africa.
Throughout the event there was food, games, presentations and a concert to end the evening. Every aspect of this event recognized African heritage and culture, passing these traditions on to the next generation.
Indigenous people from many African countries, including Bijoux Estella Mashauri from Burundi, came to support this event.
Mashauri told KTAB/KRBC that she encourages people to hold on to their roots and never forget where they came from.
