Answer The Question.
No, we don't. Ekpe is Efiks influence on neighbouring Igbos. I won't call it an Igbo culture, but a borrowed culture.
We don't have any war dance too, if I recall correctly. We basically mind our hamlets and settle disputes in village squares, though occasionally, angry families would carry machetes to threaten a feuding family. We had no known wars, just minor clashes.
Mr. Man, there's nothing like Igbo identity rather Igbo ethnicity. We are bound by the same language, Igbo, but with several dialects.
From Oxford dictionary definition of a dialect:
A dialect is a form of a language that is spoken in one area with grammar, words, and pronunciation that may be different from other forms of the same language,.
Also, you should get yourself acquainted with what they call language continuum.
Every Igbo dialect is at least mutually intelligible with its neighbouring Igbo group but as the distance increases, language continuum sets in and it becomes harder for the far distant groups to understand them except when spoken slowly like I explained sometime before.
Oh ok. Well, yeah, you could very well say that the Ngwa and Ikwere are ethnic nations, but that's not what I'm hinting at. I'm talkin about "Igbo ethnicity". We aren't one ethnic group. We simply don't associate that way. Instead, what we have is the "Igbo identity". Not necessarily an ethnicity, and not necessarily a nation. Just a collection of people who understand that there is some commonality between us, but not enough commonality to make us synonymous with each other (a [very] loose ethnic affiliation, at best).
I am from Anaocha local gov’t area of Anambra State. We’re neither Oka, Nri, nor Onicha. In fact, we have no classification.
You contradicted yourself. From your definition of Nationality, Aro, Ngwa, Ikwerre, are all Nationalities but not ethnicities.
Igbo Ethnicity is made up of several Igbo nations.
What area are you from? Nationality is, according to dictionary.com:
a large body of people, associated with a particular territory, that is sufficiently conscious of its unity to seek or to possess a government peculiarly its own: The president spoke to the nation about the new tax.
The Igbo did not indetify as 'Igbo' 200 years ago, some didn't know some 'sub-groups' existed even till this day, have you heard of Ikwo?
ethnic traits, background, allegiance, or association.
Most communities in igboland identify with themselves first before the larger Igbo body, hence the Ezillo-Eza clashes, did you hear about that? There's actually an ongoing war in Igboland, but in a relatively unknown state.
If the majority of a group does not identify with another group, they should not be forced to, this is in regards to the Ikwerre.
What's the meaning of Igbo Nationality and Ngwa/Aro/etc Ethnicity?
Folks una don come again, na so Ikwerres take start oo, before you know it, dey say dey no be Igbo.
Myself, I no get any classification like Aro, Ngwa, Nsukka, does it mean I no get ethnicity?
I beg make una stop dis nonsense.
