On the 24th of September 2009 there was a competition at Adams Mission. It was held to show people that they can participate in Heritage Day by celebrating their culture, so the Department of Arts and Culture organised a traditional dance competition. There were two categories, ingoma and isishiyameni.
There were a number of participating groups but at the end of the day there had to be a winner.
The results were:
- Ingoma – first prize went to Amanono (from Mashiwase) – they won R3500 and a trophy.
- Isishiyameni – first prize went to Amaphikankani – they won R3500 and a trophy.
Each group that participated walked away with certificates for each and every member.
