Tangyan Festival

Igbaras celebrates the Tangyan Festival

The growth of human civilization is intimately associated to rivers. The earliest known civilizations arose in the great river valleys of southwest Asia, northwest India, and northern China. The "cradle of civilization," Mesopotamia is named after a Greek word meaning "between the rivers." The Indus River Valley became an instrument in the rise of an advanced Bronze Age culture that lasted for 1,000 years. The first Chinese civilization to develop a comprehensive writing system and left a written record is the Shang Dynasty that was centered in the Yellow River Valley.
