Abstract & description[edit source]

Abstract[edit source]

Lots of indigenous Hausa cultures and traditions are disappearing due to Western influences. This culture is rich and therefore far healthier especially when it comes to food and dressing in some cases. These cultures represent the aboriginal Hausa culture, but sadly, many of our folks are getting more and more used to the western way of life, and hence, the newer generations and the outside world seldom know about these cultures and traditions. The Wikimedia Hub, Umaru Musa Yar’adua thought of bringing an entertainment session during the 2023 Wikimania showing the rich Hausa Culture; dressing, cuisine/food, dance, etc. We will showcase some of the olden and aboriginal dress modes, foods which are very useful in the olden days but yet going extinct, and some traditional dances. This session will be pre-recorded and shown during the 2023 Wikimania and also provide pictures of this tradition which will be added to the Commons
