Most tribes have uniquely beautiful cultures that naturally evolve over time. The Igbo culture of indentured servitude has evolved into a tradition. The tradition of bringing relatives from the village to apprentice in their store in the city. They would often use them as house help for years without compensation under the pretext of training them in the trade of one day owning their own store.
It is the 40 acres and a mule agreement.
They keep these school age children in servitude while they send their children to private schools. The women would do things like bring their younger sisters from the village to “serve” them in their matrimonial homes, making them easy target practice for their husband’s libido. – @OgbeniAyotunde
It is now common practice for some Nigerian mothers to leave their husbands in Nigeria and flee to America to live with their married children. Seems okay on the surface, but when her daughter starts having marital problems what advice would she give her? Stay and work it out or leave him? @OgbeniAyotunde

Every tribe in Africa have a war dance. Muhammad Ali showed the world his tribal war dance of floating like a butterfly and stinging like a bee. So why do Africans see fighting and dancing as a spiritual art form?
Ibreeggon Masquerades appear only on rare occasions to celebrate the funeral of a VIP of the village.
