Transcript of Things Fall Apart - Map, History and Economy

By: Chad and Adam Map, Economy and History of Nigeria Economy of Nigeria and Igbo people Nigeria is an mixture of ancient Kingdoms, Caliphates, Empires and City-states with a long history of organized societies. Its boundaries were drawn as a result of trade (from slavery to pepper or ivory) and overseas territorial ambitions of Western European powers in the 19th century.
The name Nigeria was adopted in 1898 to designate the British Protectorates on the River Niger. History of Nigeria I pledge to Nigeria my Country
To be faithful, loyal and honest

but some say they came from the Jewish state of Israel,
and some also say they migrated from Egypt during the stone age era.

Their cultures are further divided
into many groups, due to dialects and boundaries among the
eastern states in particular and a good sample of this is their traditional
way of welcoming visitors, which is usually offering kola to guests,
even before they made their mission known. Quotes "He owed every neighbour some money, from a few cowries to quite substantial amounts."
"He was a wealthy farmer and had two barn full of yams."
"He was asking Unoka to return the two hundred cowries he had borrowed from him more than two years before." Detailed map of the nine villages "He shot out his left hand and pointed in the direction of Mbaino."
"And in a clear unemotional voice he told Umuofia how their daughter had gone to market at Mbaino and had been killed."
"Okonkwo of Umuofia arrived at Mbaino... two days later he returned home." Works Cited Art and Life in Africa. Igbo Information. 3 November 1998. 10 March 2013 <http://www.uiowa.edu/~africart/toc/people/Igbo.html>.
