Freedom [email protected] Book Fair: House of Memory ; a conversation on memory and the importance of oral traditions in indigenous societies.

As an oral society, when members of our community die, we lose the wisdom and knowledge that they carry. That loss entails the loss of information on a family line or even a whole era. The need to find sustainable ways of recording history from elders drives the project ‘The House of Memory. Meet Easterine Kire, an acclaimed writer who is a pioneer opening up the beautiful Naga culture to the world through her writing, treasuring the oral traditions of Nagaland.
