Traditions of Igbo Origin

A Study of Pre-Colonial Population Movements in Africa


John Nwachimereze Oriji

This fascinating study represents the first major historical analysis of the traditions of Igbo Origin. John Oriji uses evidence derived from oral traditions, archival records, works of various researchers and other sources to provide a rare insight into the roots of the diverse population movements that have taken place in Igboland over time. He also uses the Igbo example to contribute to the debate on the Bantu migrations and the genesis of mankind, agriculture and iron technology in the West African sub-region.
