Welcome to Mopin Festival

We invite you to kindly join us with your family in the Mopin Festival celebration, Itanagar-2018

The Mopin Festival of Galo community of Arunachal Pradesh is an agricultural festival celebrated for good harvest, good health, peace and prosperity. It is the rituals of fertility of crops, plants, animals and human beings. There are six seasons of Galo: Dilo (January-February), Digum (March-April) Dirii (May-June), Diraa (July-August), Digin (September-October), Tiruk (November-December). Mopin is performed and celebrated in the month of Luki (April) from 5th to 8th of April every year.  People pray to Mopin Ane for her blessings, happiness in life, good health, good harvest, peace and prosperity and to ward off negativities like diseases, calamities, evil spirits etc.

The celebration of Mopin festival emanates from the deep rooted faith of the Galo people in the power of Mopin Goddess/Ane. The story of Mopin is about Abo Tani’s struggle for existence on earth. Legend has it that, Abo Tani, the first man of the Tani group, learnt the art of cultivation, use of implements and other requirements in life from Mopin Ane when he visited with Dumpu and Kipu in Digo Yamo and since then agricultural activities are said to have begun on earth. Digo Yamo is the natual abode of Moj, Mopin, Modu, Hurin and Ampir. In reverence of Mopin Ane’s contribution, Abo Tani started the ritual performance of worship of Ane Mopin, and thus began celebration of Mopin festival.

It is believed that during the celebration, Mopin Ane, anyi Pinku and Pinte stay in the house of the Pingi Neri (the Mopin Host) and visit all other houses to bless them with good health and happiness and, as such, Nyibo and Bo are also housed with Pingi Neri till the celebrations are over.

The festival has myth, religious chanting, rhythmic with vigorous dances and also carries positive messages of harmonious existence on earth.
