Folk Dance

SadinukTSo (Akas)

The Akas have a number of dances and songs for the different socio-religious festivities. One of the  well known dance among the Akas is the Sadinuktso. A member from the boy's group comes forward, gives his performance for a short while and recedes. A girl then comes and she also dances all alone. This relation goes on till all the boys and girls of the group have danced. No song is sung with this dance.   It is generally performed in marriages, guest, entertainments or on the construction of a new house.
