Introduction to Taplejung District of Limbuwan
The video shows us an old Palungwa song. The following is the meaning of the song in English:
You go uphill and face on Palungwa, you will see how they are!
Palungwa is belonged to Limbu people. They are living in Taplejung District which is in the eastern part of Limbuwan.
Limbu people have long history and live in Limbuwan (Eastern Nepal). They have their own language, music, writing and living styles.
Limbu Cultures have been disappearing. Nowadays, many Limbu people do not how to write and speak Limbu language. Most of their farmlands are sold. Their cultures are in danger.
