Monday, February 18, 2019 (PW) —A spoon that shines through out its longevity carries a shadowy pride of its manufacturer.

Culture represents the artistic choices, behavioral pattern, religious diversity, and other belief patterns of a particular people. The way in which a certain society develops has a key role in the development of its culture and language. Superstitions and moral upbringing of a society also have a lot to do with its culture. Even though art is an expression of individuals in the society, when it is loved by a lot of audience in the society, it becomes a part of the collective culture of the society in which the people live.

When a cultural practice persists to exist for long, it becomes a part of tradition.

Congratulations to Jieeng daa Australia for the great ingenuity of teaching young children their cultural way of living, wrestling and dancing have been part of Jieeng celebrated historical lifestyle.

Rehearsing of Jieeng’s dancing and wrestling shows within the big cities of Australia such as Melbourne, Victoria, Canberra, Queensland, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth is another huge stride for archiving of Jieeng traditions and will enhance the continuity of Jieeng’s cultures in foreign lands.

A hunter that has tasted the sweetness of a bush meat has no objection in learning more tactical hunting skills.

Jieeng people in the Diaspora are greatly dappled for their cultural shows and representations which are evidently noticeable in YouTube and other social Media outlets.

Shadrack Nyok, San Media Production, Ajakguong, Nice-B Manyok, Ajangruam, Jieng Bor  and many other media sites  have put up more energy in entertaining and educating Jieeng Population wherever they are through compilation of Jieeng various traditional events such as dancing and wrestling .

Highest recognition goes to Jieeng in the Diaspora more especially in Kakuma Refugee Camp-Kenya, Kampala-Uganda, Eldoret-Kenya Nakuru-Kenya, Nairobi-Kenya, Australia, USA, Canada and the rest for their unchallenged stand up in the preservation and documentations of Jieeng cultures.

Jieeng in South Sudan are proud of their relatives in Australia for the way they have brought up their children, such commitment will bail out the children from becoming victims of the lost culture.

Singers, composers and many dancing groups and Associations across the globe have displayed a professional and artistic approach for upholding of Jieeng cultures and heritages all over the world.

Our culture is what defines us; it is an integral part of our lives, the way we live, the mores and the string that bind us together.

It is visibly obvious a well that is constantly maintains with much care would never run out of water, those who dwell on their ancestral’ cultures cannot fall into the societal gap fashioned by the behaviour of the changing world.

Culture resides in the hearts and soul of its people, those who lack clear set of cultures can be victims of bad confrontations and tempting incidents.

Culture constitutes a batch of driving force that propels those who dwell in its forward with friendly force and open a wider space for self identification and expression.

A hunter who spots a beehive after an empty hunting trip is an experienced hunter, any skill achieved must be used to fulfill one desire but not to alter chain of one’s identity.
