As dates draw near for the Uganda International Cultural Tourism fair, ChimpLyf has reliably been informed that, among other things, the fair will expound on Ugandan totems.
A totem is a natural object or animal believed by a particular society to have spiritual significance and adopted by it as an emblem.
With “Totems of Uganda-Buganda edition”—a book about the significant role totems play in the conservation of nature, organizers hope to shed more light as revelers mingle and network.
The book, we have learnt, depicts all totemic species in full color and captures the stories of how they came into existence.
“This is the only book which reveals traditional methods people in Uganda use to conserve nature,” said Betty Aliba of Perfect Events Ltd, the organizers.
“Come to Uganda Museum from 28th to 30th July and look out for the meaning of your name and your totem in the book of Totems,” she added.
Below are some of the personalities who have endorsed the event:
