    Obierika is open-minded; he understands and appreciates the changing values and foreign culture that is infiltrating the Igbo traditions. Obierika is receptive to new ideas and is willing to adapt to change, whereas Okonkwo is narrow-minded, unable to accept any change to traditional Igbo culture and beliefs.   • Igbo Culture in ‘Things Fall Apart’ Chinua Achebe describes Igbo culture, which encompasses polytheistic religion, father-son inheritance, farming traditions, and belief in evil spirits. Every major event that happens has some kind of significance based on the Igbo culture and whatever related aspect of it is being described.

    the effects of European colonialism on Igbo society from an African perspective. Hence this essay is an attempt to show an insight of pre and post colonialism on Igbo society. It is argued that the interaction between the whites and the Igbo people had both negative and positive consequences. Questions About Traditions and Customs. In such ritualized events as weddings and funerals, what aspects of life do the Igbo people celebrate or mourn? Much of Igbo culture includes highly stylized speech. What purpose does the formal way of speaking serve? To another man? To an audience? To a family member? To the gods?

    Achebe’s adaptations of Igbo oral art are intrinsic to his writing’s political engagement because they assert the integrity and authority of the African voice in a global order defined by colonialism. This book reveals how his work has helped to restructure a global vision of Africa.   One of the greatest examples of their customs and traditions is the feast of the New Yam. It is through this festivity that the Igbo people thank the earth goddess and the source of all fertility, Am. Igbo culture is unique culture in itself, and just like any other culture it has its merits and demerits.
