LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- A local organization celebrated its culture Saturday.
The Indian Women's Association of Lafayette put on an event to highlight its traditions. Members of the IWA performed popular dances and songs for everyone in attendance.
The performers ranged from children to adults. The event took place at Sunnyside Intermediate School in Lafayette. Trustee Rwitti Roy said this event helps the children involved learn about their cultural customs.
"So we do this big celebration so children can get to see a part of what is being celebrated in India and sort of assimilate into that culture, you know, feel a sense of belonging to their roots," Roy said.
The IWA raises thousands of dollars each year in order to give back to the community.
