Why Do Igbos Claim To Be That They Are From Ethiopia Originally?

Is it true that Igbos are originally from Ethiopia?

I never heard before that any tribes in West Africa would be from Ethiopia or the Horn of Africa.

I dont think it's Ethiopia exactly, but there might have been some migration through the territory in the past.

If you say Igbos do have semitic origins (Israel to exact), you'll be more in tune with the generally held beliefs.

I do not believe Igbos are from Jews. But if they were, why do you guys think u would be from the white jews? They are not even the original jews.

If you were indeed Jewish, that would place u right smack in Ethiopia in Beta Israel, the oldest Jewish community in Africa.

have you seen the genographic project by national geographic? they used DNA to trace EVERYONE on earth to that general area of Africa. hispanics, whites, blacks, asians, indians, pacific islanders and orientals alike

ethio-guy, i truly doubt that an igbo told u they originated from ethiop.

u may here some igbos say we came from jews, though.

but just leave the matter alone. it won't change anything.

silly THREAD. Why are fools always obsessed with origin of Igbos? We are Igbo simple and could care less if migrated from MARS like as if doing so will change our lives for the better.

Igbo bu Igbo.

Ethio,

depending on which direction the wind blows. . .thats where the Igbos are from. Last I checked they were Jews. . .lets see if the wind blows towards Afghanistan tomorrow, then they might be Pashtuns. . or better yet, Turks.
