Hard work and dedication to keeping African traditions alive have been the life of Sister Ava who will this year receive the "Keeper of the Tradition Award."

Executive Director of the Emancipation Support Committee, Zakiya Wadada, says she deserves the accolade.

Sister Ava herself says that assisting the youth, and carrying on the traditions of the Yoruba tribe in Trinidad, is an ordinary way of life for her

She said it was also the dedication of her teachers at Secondary School and the contribution of national artistes which helped to push her to do her best for the youth. She says that as she learned something she would vow to pass it on to someone else, so that nothing would be lost, least of all the traditions and ways of the Yoruba Village in East Port of Spain.
