Igbo Culture, Religion, Origin and History

Post by nnadum » Fri Sep 22, 2017 8:34 pm

The Igbo are the second largest group of people living in southern Nigeria. They are one of the three major tribes in Nigeria. They consist of many subgroups and are known to be socially and culturally diverse. Although Igbos are mostly Christians today, they have a deep and original culture.

Igbo culture includes the various customs, practices and traditions of the people. It comprises ancient practices as well as modern concepts added into the Igbo culture either through evolution or outside influences. These customs and traditions include the Igbo people’s visual art, religious beliefs, birth, maraige and death rituals, use of language, music and dance forms, as well as their attire, cuisine(food) and language dialects.

The culture of the Igbos modify the thoughts, speech, actions and artifacts of the Igbos so much that the Igbos are easily distinguished from other ethnic groups. How a culture survives depends on the peoples capacity to learn and transmit it to succeeding generations. The Igbo culture expresses itself in the customs, beliefs, war, burial, social norms, religion, racial, social and material traits of the Igbos
