Kachin Celebrations

The Summer Learning Journey is a program to help prevent the summer slide which is the drop in academic performance by students after the holidays. During the holidays, students are given creative and interesting tasks to complete for 6 weeks during the holiday. Additionally, students can comment on others blogs of the Summer Learning Journey to earn extra points and thus, earning them prizes at the end of the program.

For this task, we were asked to create a collage of various photos of our family celebrating one cultural celebration or create a poster expaining one of the cutural celebrations. I chose to create a poseter explaining one of my cutural celebrations, which is known as Manaw Poi which was to gather people to meet and discuss the future, to commemorate the death of an elder, to bring good fortune within the region and etc.

  1. Kia ora David,

    Thank you for providing such a well crafted and eye-catching poster all about Manaw Poi and the Kachin Celebrations!

    I have loved reading your poster to learn more about the different reasons for celebrating. Also love how it can be celebrated through dance! Are you an expert at the Manaw dance?

    Keep up the great work!
