Minister of State for Home Affairs, Kiren Rijiju inaugurated the Research Institution of World Ancient, Traditional, Culture & Heritage (RIWATCH) Museum at Roing on 22nd July 2017.
It is place of exchange of cultural values of various tribes of the state and the North East.
The MoS also pressed for documentation and research to preserve age-old culture and traditions of the state, and exhorted people to shoulder the responsibility to pass on traditional and cultural values to the next generation.
Highlighting the UNESCO report, which states that there are 32 languages in Arunachal Pradesh that are on the verge of extinction, the government is initiating programmes and policies to find out and to revive those minor and major tribes whose languages are on the verge of extinction.
Aims also include showcasing minor tribes in the state, least they become extinct.
The importance and objective of establishment of RIWATCH in the region and called for cooperation in bringing up the museum for preservation of cultural values of various tribes is immeasurable.
