Literally translated as the people’s fiesta, Legu Gam is a tradition of the people of North Maluku which illustrates the unity between the royal family and the common people. The symbol of the festival is obviously the Legu Dance, a royal dance which is traditionally performed only at official events in the presence of the Sultan.
