The upcoming one-day international conference, jointly organized by Ao Riju and the Language Translation Centre, Fazl Ali College, sponsored by Kohima Aor Pensioner Telungjem, focusing on the Language, Literature, and Oral Tradition of the Ao-Nagas, stands as a beacon of such appreciation and preservation efforts.

The Ao-Naga language serves as a vessel for the transmission of our unique identity across generations. In the face of globalization and cultural homogenization, initiatives like this conference play a vital role in safeguarding and promoting the Ao-Naga cultural legacy.

Preserving indigenous languages is crucial for safeguarding cultural heritage, fostering intergenerational continuity, and promoting linguistic diversity in the global community.
