KNOW YOUR HISTORY: Umuganura, Rwanda's thanksgiving day
The national harvest day was an event that came second to the enthronization of a new king. Big as it was, “Umuganura”– literally “Thanks Giving day” was performed by Rwandans at the beginning of every harvest. It was a very big event in the kingdom as Rwandans celebrated the achievements in terms of harvest both at the kingdom and family level.
Rwandans focused mainly on staple foods. (Courtesy)
