First celebrated on 26 September 1981, the Lusata Cultural Festival was under the leadership of the Mafwe Chief, Richard Mamili, as a reaction to the issues which had befallen the Mafwe people in the then Caprivi Strip (now Zambezi region). 

Launching on 17 September 2018, the Lusata Festival will bring their culture to the FNCC as a Society talk, exhibition, play and dance and will occupy a market stall between 3 – 8PM.

Their rich cultural diversity and also their achievements in politics, education, agriculture and many other fields of human endeavor are celebrated during Heritage Week 2018 in honour, too, of the ancestors who lie buried under the turf at Linyanti. 

The objective is to unify, safeguarding the rich diversity of Namibia. 

Le festival de Lusata célèbre la bravoure des Mafwe, en particulier ceux qui ont vécu en exil.
Célébré pour la première fois le 26 septembre 1981, le festival culturel de Lusata était dirigé par le chef des mafwe, Richard Mamili, en réaction aux problèmes auxquels étaient confrontés les Mafwe dans la bande de Caprivi (maintenant région du Zambèze). 
Lancé le 17 Septembre 2018, le Festival de Lusata présentera sa culture à la FNCC en tant que conférence, exposition, étal de marché, jeu et danse. 
Leur riche diversité culturelle et leurs réalisations 
dans les domaines de la politique, de l'éducation, de l'agriculture et de nombreux autres domaines de l'activité humaine sont célébrés lors de la Semaine du patrimoine 2018 en l'honneur des ancêtres enfouis sous le gazon de Linyanti. 

L'objectif est d'unifier, de préserver la riche diversité de la Namibie.
