Kohima: Chakhesang Students’ Union (CSU), the student body of Chakhesang Naga tribe, is all set to celebrate its 75 years in February next year at Phek Town under the theme “towards a refined guild”.
Sharing this at a press conference on Thursday in state capital Kohima, Central Organising Committee (COC) convenor Mütsikhoyo Yhobu said the CSU is one of the oldest organisations in the community and that its 75th anniversary is set to be held during the first or second week of February 2022.
Yhobu said prior to the formation of the Chakhesang tribe, students community was already in existence. However, the CSU was formally established in 1947 only after the Chakhesang as a tribe was formed.
“The underground factions faced a lot of problems. They could not come out openly to meet the people or come forward to express their desires,” Yhobu said.
Like the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF), he said that the CSU was instrumental in this aspect of the Naga struggle.
He further added that the CSU was one of the pioneers in addressing community issues and has played key roles in ensuring people’s welfare in various capacities.
Chakhesang as a tribe celebrated its 75th anniversary in January 2021, while the CSU will celebrate its 75 years of existence next year, he added.
CSU president Vetho Vadeo said that the theme ‘towards a refined guild’ has been conceived out of the idea that the unique cultures of the Chakhesangs needs to be refined in many ways.
“Chakhesang tribe has many unique culture traits yet it needs to be refined in many areas”, he said, adding that he hopes that the people would take the opportunity to refine themselves even as they celebrate 75 years of existence.
