Descrição

Due to western influence and advancement in technology and education, many aspects of authentic African culture are fast fading away. Some of the practices have changed over time and gradually loosing many of their initial elements. The tradition had been transmitted over time through oral tradition, but in modern times, oral tradition cannot be relied upon for a culture to be preserved for future generations. This reference book documents three main rites that are practiced by the Uvwie-Urhobo tribe in Nigeria. They include the rites of marriage, burial and chieftaincy. The what, why, how, and where questions regarding these rites are fully explained. The book also describes two main annual festivals celebrated by this group of people. The significance of each of the festival is noted.

A description of the rite of female circumcision is included in this book, although it is thankfully no longer practiced. Unfortunately, it was a widely practiced tradition in Uvwie-Urhobo until the early1990s, when it was rightfully banned by the Nigerian Government. The chapter on female circumcision is included to record an unfortunate and painful tradition that once existed.

There is a glossary of Uvwie-Urhobo terms used in the book. The glossary is followed by a brief information piece about Nigeria. It includes such topics as location, climate, economy, Government, etc.
