Seychelles shines at Festival Liberte Metisse 2015 on Reunion Island ( A delegation from Seychelles led by Principal Secretary for Tourism Anne Lafortune flew to Reunion Island last week to take part in the Festival Liberte Metisse from December 19-21.

The Seychelles National Troupe, representatives from the Ministry of Tourism and Culture and from the Seychelles Tourism Board, and Donatien Freminot, who is a coconut shell artisan, were also part of the delegation.

The National History Museum assistant curator Jeanne Pothin was glad to share her knowledge about the traditions from Seychelles while handicrafts from Seychelles was well represented by Mr. Freminot. He displayed his items and demonstrated how to make handicrafts with coconut shells.

During the three days, the delegation was happy and proud to promote the assets of Seychelles, which included showcasing its beautiful culture. On Sunday, the National Troupe took part in the closing parade to showcase the colors of the islands.
