Traditional igbo religion
Traditional Igbo religion is rooted in belief in ancestors and spirits. The belief is that the ancestors play a role in the lives of the living descendants. They protect the community from strife and epidemics.
These spirits also have their own temples. There are also priests for the benevolent spirits. Often, these acts of religious worship are conducted on behalf of the village.
In traditional Igbo religion, there are many deities. Amadioha, Anyanwu and a creator god are among the popular spirits.
Ani/Ala, the earth goddess, is also a very important spirit. She is believed to be the guardian of the earth. Other spirits include the sun, moon and sky deities.
Traditional igbo agriculture
Traditional Igbo agriculture was based on three main sectors: agriculture, non-agricultural production, and trade. Agricultural production consisted of yams, cassava, and beans. Non-agricultural production included farming and weaving.
Igbo traditional agriculture was a semi-skilled, conservative practice. It was opposed to virtually all forms of innovation. There was a clear division of labor between men and women, and the roles were complementary.
Traditionally, Igbo women took the primary responsibility for providing food. This was done through a variety of petty trades, including the sale of cooked foods, and the making and selling of mats, baskets, and cloth. Traditionally, Igbo women also engaged in pottery making and basketry.
Traditionally, boys were groomed by their fathers to be bold and adventurous. They were assigned a number of duties, including gathering yam seedlings, accompanying their fathers to social events, and participating in “manly” sports. The birth of a boy was considered a joyful occasion.
