Promoting Culture

scroll

Another important aspect within the FKNK portfolio is to promote and safeguard cultural identity

Maltese Hunting Dog

 Throughout the years we have seen various photos of this breed which due to it’s once common abundance, the importance for safeguarding this particular breed was always inspired by the Maltese, of which we have always been proud of our cultural heritage and this pride extends to socio-cultural aspects, including hunting and dog breeding.

 

At present the Kelb tal-Kacca ta’ Malta is not internationally recognized as a breed, thus is only found in Malta and very few in Australia as were exported by Maltese immigrants.  

The FKNK in collaboration with the Malta Falconers Club has embarked on an initiative by organising school visits and promote informative talks to children in relation to the Maltese Hunting Dog, Pharaoh Hound and Falconry.

Hunting Traditions and Cultural Museum

“Cultural differences should not separate us from each other, 

but rather cultural diversity brings a collective strength that can benefit all of humanity”

Another part of the farm's project houses an exhibition-type layout where hunting and trapping paraphernalia and artefacts are put on display.  This one-of-a-kind cultural museum aims to promote the traditional aspect of hunting and trapping on the Maltese Islands.  A joint venture with Heritage Malta is envisaged in the near future.
