The Basis of Our Projects
We come from a culture of storytelling, so let’s share those wonderful tales from our rich Igbo tradition before we lose them.  We are products of not only our parents but also other relatives due to our dynamic collectivist culture.  Our stories will inspire our children to value the best in our Igbo culture.

 

Future Projects

PUBLISH YOUR STORIES ABOUT IGBO LIFE AND CULTURE
Do you have a compelling Igbo story to tell about love, triumph, resiliency, wisdom, strength, relationships, culture, or about the Igbo people that shaped you?  Or maybe you just want to preserve your mother’s or your father’s favorite wisdom for posterity?

Would you like to contribute to our future books?
