This is a an other move towards preservation and promotion of tribal culture in the state Jharkhand.

Around 300 children of this region will be trained in Sekkor by trainers from Jharkhand. The programme will be conducted in three batches having 100 children in each batch. The programme will conclude on May 8, 2017. After training, children will play in the Sekkor Premier League in May this year.

Urmila Ekka, Head Tribal Culture, Corporate Social Responsibility, Tata Steel motivated the participants to take up challenges in life.

Satija said, “We have been working on various facets of tribal culture, including tribal music and dance, agro forest food diversity, interventions to preserve and promote tribal languages and tribal scripts. With this intervention, we are trying to inculcate the spirit of sportsmanship amongst the tribal children and revive the tribal sport, Sekkor.”

Ekka said, “This is for the first time that we are holding such programme in Noamundi in a big way. I am happy to see the response and look forward to taking this tribal sport to a higher level.”

Sekkor is a game played by the HO tribe. This game is played during the hot summer season and is believed to bring rain and prevent drought. Played between 9 or 11 people, this game identifies with the spirit and swiftness of the HO tribe. With the passage of time, this game of precision is no longer recognised as a popular game; hence, Tata Steel has taken initiative to revive this forgotten game.
