Angam Day

Nauru celebrates life as nation commemorates Angam Day

“Today is a day we remember and celebrate life,” President Aingimea said as he acknowledged the survivors of exile and those that remained on Nauru and endured the harsh conditions of war.

A report in the Nauru Bulletin said the story of Angam is about Nauruan people’s struggle, resilience and triumph over hardships of hunger, illness, greed, the cruelties of war and the threat of extinction-twice.

Angam Day is commemorated on 26 October.

Jubilation, triumph, celebration and homecoming are words that describe Angam.
