Ethno-training in Tuva before ShagaaIn Tuva, tomorrow, on 6 February at 16:00 at the Headquarters of youth organizations at USK "Subedei", there will be conducted an ethno-training event. It was initiated by Youth administration of the republic. As Syrga Suvakput, the organizer, told "Tuva-Online", the idea was born a long time ago.

"We wanted to teach young people about our traditional rituals, their history and philosophical content. Unfortunately, lectures and excursions are traditional and young people do not always come to them. But such a creative event as this should attract young people, we thought about it and decided to hold ethno-training just before Shagaa."
