Within the framework of the project “Protection of Intangible Heritage of the Occupied Regions”, a focus group meeting was held in Koda with the population of the occupied village of Kekhvi. IDPs from Kekvi spoke about the traditions and customs of their native village, which they practiced every year, and still haven’t forgotten about.

At the meeting, the participants spoke in detail about how Village Day, Easter, Shiooba, Angels Day, Korkotoba, New Year, and Chitpapoba were celebrated; They shared their knowledge of medicinal plants and also told us about fishing and hunting traditions, sacred places and toponyms.
