Solomon Island Youths encouraged to learn about their cultures

Young people have been encouraged to learn about their cultures. Co-ordinator of the Baefua Cultural Group in Lau-Mbaelelea Constituency, North Malaita, Peter Lautalo, says culture is people's identity and resource.

The Baefua Cultural Group had recently performed for the Pacific Islands Forum Economic Ministers during their meeting in Honiara.

"I encourage youths to take part in cultural activities. I realised that many young people were only involved in modern music entertainment and less on cultural activities. I am appealing to young people in the country to learn about and revive the cultural activities."

Mr Lautalo says the group also performed during last week’s National Trade and Cultural Show.

He says their Parliamentarian and Provincial member have been helping them take part in national events.
