Gallongs in the Along-Basar-Bame areas celebrate Mopin festival in the first five days of April. Mopin is thought to bring wealth and prosperity to the village but also drive the evil shadow away and receive the blessing of God for universal happiness.
During this festival, the Adi Gallong villages come alive with the dancing and chanting of their rhythmic songs made livelier by smearing of rice powder on each other’s faces.
The Mopin festival plays an important role in the cultural history of the Gallong tribe.
