Organised by Qasr Al Muwaiji
The Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi is bringing back the ‘Emirati Dagger Programme’, which will allow visitors to learn the secrets of making a dagger, the equipment and materials used and the correct way to wear it.
The event will take place in different sessions and dates throughout the full year. Participants will also become acquainted with the inscriptions and special decorations of the daggers of the ruling families of the UAE.
The dagger is an integral part of Emirati tradition and culture and was always worn by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, founding father of the UAE. In the olden days, carrying a dagger was not only used as means of self-protection, but also as a symbol associated with noble values, notable strength, dignity, courage, honour, nobility and pride.
