Minnesota Tamil Sangam hosted Sangamam Vizha 2020 last month at Hopkins High School. Sangamam is an annual event to celebrate Thai pongal, a harvest festival celebrated by the Tamil community to honor and thank farmers, cattle and nature in southern India. As part of this celebration, the organization hosted a grand show of cultural events including Tamil traditional folk dance, music and martial arts. Gov. Tim Walz also proclaimed January as “Tamil Language and Heritage Month” in the state.
