Cameroonians identify with as sons and daughters of the same fatherland. Culture

new cultural policy of Cameroon
can be summarized by the concept of cultural spiritualism… As such, culture is
a school of responsibility where men and women come out ready to assume and
accept the common values they assigned to themselves”.
promote the values of our culture, we must create opportunities for artists and
men of culture from all walks of life to get to privileged platforms like the
Palais des Congres and other halls in other administrative units”.

expression and promotion or valorization”.

exploited, and by being valorized and marketed abroad”.
