The Newa Cultural Society of Alberta (NCSA) recently launched a Newa Music, Dance, and Theater Heritage Project 2017 amidst a cultural event at Lansdowne Community Hall in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on June 11, 2017.   The main objective of the heritage project is to promote and preserve Newa identity and culture in Edmonton through music, dance and theater training to the children, youths and adults in the community.  The heritage project which is supported by the City of Edmonton runs in the weekend at Lansdowne Community Hall until fall 2017.

The heritage project was kicked off worshiping Nashaw Dyah (the Lord of Music and Dance) and musical instruments by the music and dance instructors, participants and community members.  Earlier in the cultural event, Dr. Hemanta Joshi, President of NCSA, welcomed all the instructors, participants and community members and briefly spoke about the nature of the heritage project.

Meanwhile, Newa Cultural Society of Alberta (NCSA) is a non- profit organization established in April 22, 2013 under the Societies Act of Government of Alberta to practice, promote, and preserve Newa cultural heritage (language, literature, culture, arts, and traditions) in Edmonton for the current and future generations.  Since its establishment, NCSA has been organizing various cultural events (such as Pahachhre, Janabahadyah and Biska Jatra; Buddha Jayanti; Sithi Nakha and Bungdyah Jatra; Gun Punhi and Yenya Punhi; community Mha Puja and New Year Celebration; and Yomari Punhi) and project activities (e.g., Newa language classes to children) annually in the community.  More information about NCSA and its cultural events and project activities are available at www.ncsacanada.com.
