About the event

The "Wang oo" is an integral cultural tradition of the Acholi people, an ethnic group in northern Uganda. It represents a communal gathering around a fireplace, functioning as an informal school where elders pass on vital cultural knowledge to younger generations. This includes stories, proverbs, rituals, taboos, and historical accounts of their lineage and clan history. The gatherings also serve as a forum for resolving conflicts, making decisions on tribal matters, and reinforcing social cohesion.
