Today, November 10, 2019 is a significant day in the history of Dehkontee Artists Theatre, Inc. (DATI). The DATI Montserrado Chapter youths paid a courtesy call on elders residing in Barnesville Kebbah to consult with and request the blessings of the elders in their county. This tradition is deeply rooted in our cultural belief that one must always consult the elders as a sign of respect, before he undertakes any important task or project.
In this way, not only does one get the consent of the living, but one may also get the approval of the spirits of his ancestors. The DATI Montserrado Chapter youths did just that so that their formal launch of the DATI Kukatonon Peace Project in Liberia will be successful on Saturday, November 16th . READ MORE
