All yams from the previous years harvest are eaten or thrown away before the New Yam Festival a symbol of abundance from the new harvest. The first yam is eaten by the oldest man or the Igwe of the kingdom. With offerings to the ancestors and gods.

Mohammed & Nana

Mohammed and Nana are my neigbours in Abuja, Nigeria. Mohammed is big on soccer, playing street ball with the rest of the neighborhood kids every evening, sometimes with no shoes or just flip flops.

Nana is probably one of the smartest kids in my hood, always wanting to know every detail about my tattoos, she would tell me how well she is doing in school and for a kid who speaks hausa practically all day am amazed at her english.

I spent some time in eastern Nigeria and the experience gave me a renewed sense of respect and appreciation for the Igbo mother.

The Igbo culture places a high level of honor and respect for mothers. There is also added responsibilities placed on the Ada (the first born female child)
