What is the traditional dress of Igbo? What do men and women of the tribe Igbo wear? This and much more about the life of the tribe is in this article.

igbo traditional attire

The origin

Igbo is the people in Eastern Nigeria. There are numerous subdivisions and ethnic groups.

Ethnogenesis of Igbo has not been studied. There are different hypotheses about their origins (some authors argue that the Igbo ancestors came out of Egypt). Ethnogenetic legends suggest ancient economic and cultural ties with the Yoruba, Ibibio, Igalo, and others.

The main occupation of the Igbo is a manual cultivation. The main instruments are the hack and several kinds of knives. In the southern region's main crop is oil palm. Developed for harvesting, the most valuable are to be exported. Igbo are also engaged in fishing, trading, collecting wild breadfruits and other trees, berries, medicinal herbs, and plants. Cattle are very much appreciated and have mainly a ritual significance. Crafts are developed: blacksmithing, pottery, weaving, basketry, woodworking, and woodcarving.

The management system

At the head, there is the elder, who is considered an intermediary between relatives and their ancestors. Communities led by councils of elders, consisting of the heads of families. At the western Igbo, there is an order, when rural communities are divided into upper and lower, or senior and the junior half.

Igbo had no central authority. The highest political association is the union of rural communities with a common meeting place, political, ritual and market center.

The traditional settlement consists of a large number of households facing sometimes quite far apart.

There are several types of housing. Traditionally, it can be rectangular or round. The walls are built of poles, which are coated with clay. The roofs are covered with grass, palm leaves, corrugated iron. There are also farm buildings, storage facilities for food.

Traditional clothing

Igbo traditional attire includes many elements. Igbo traditional wear for men is to wear the wide spacious cape over a shirt, women wear jackets and skirt made of a piece of cloth around the hips. Igbo traditional wedding attire for groom includes:

  • hat,
  • cane,
  • a piece of cloth around hips.

igbo traditional dress

In the cities, people usually wear the western-style clothes instead of Igbo traditional clothing. As for the other aspects of the traditional appearance, the tradition of scarification often preserved. Experts, like the locals, may be determined by the scars on their faces, from which tribe the person is. Typically, traditional dress is also complemented by large decorations, such as earrings. Nigerian gele is a headgear made from a piece of cloth wrapped around the head. It is one of the most popular items of women's clothing, including as a part of Igbo traditional wedding attire for the bride along with the Igbo traditional dress.

ILLUMINATI SOCIETY give to their member, with this you can start

anything with the money and you will be successful. Another thing is

that the society have special blessing for politicians and superstars.

Being an ILLUMINATI member is a personal decision, the society don't

My name is Mr James obi from Nigeria

I was once like you, me & my wife were financially down & we used to survive on one meal a day, what kind of life was that to live. I lived in extreme poverty until i saw an opportunity to be a member of the GREAT TEMPLE OF ILLUMINATI BROTHERHOOD and I took my chances but it never misfired. I have been a member for close to 10 years now.

The higher you get the richer you become in the Illuminati, it makes your business grow faster than you can ever imagine. Illuminati brings out the talent in you and makes you famous, giving you the best connects you can ever get.

As you become a member of the Illuminati through the Illuminati Funds, You will have an opportunity to receive benefits of up to $500,000 USD in the first seven (7) days & there are many more other benefits you stand to gain afterwards.

I own a Construction company, and I also run one of the biggest Real Estate Firm here in Nigeria(Lagos).

Becoming a Member of the ILLUMINATI is not difficult at all.The only qualifications You will need are; being 18 years and above, being able to provide service for Yourself, like the Politicians, Musicians, Business Men/Women & Student and also being able to raise a reasonable membership fee as I did.

Don't hesitate to contact Illuminati Funds as I did before life becomes a living hell for You.
