those African-Ibibio proverbs depict how observant our ancestors have been approximately nature, and their wisdom of and closeness to it. Our nice grandparents used the proverbs successfully and accurately simply because they knew their meanings. utilizing them didn't in simple terms shop their strength yet supplied vividness, brevity and strength to the assumption or idea they tried to articulate. They have been in a position to transmit this knowledge from iteration to iteration via oral background, that's, via phrases of mouth, until eventually lately. The oral procedure sustained us for thus lengthy in part simply because some time past, kids and grandchildren caught round their mom and dad and grandparents lengthy sufficient to profit from them. one more reason is that the more youthful generations have been additionally attracted to studying them. on the time, utilizing loads of proverbs in one’s speeches in social conferences and in inner most conversations was once an index of excessive intelligence and knowledge, and the speaker was once held in excessive esteem locally. It used to be a resource of satisfaction and honor for and conferred dignity at the speaker to boot.
This paintings comes out of my drawback that this oral approach may perhaps at some point soon in heritage stop to be as potent as sooner than in passing those phrases of knowledge directly to destiny generations of Ibibio little kids. If those clever sayings proceed to stay unwritten, the potential for wasting this element of our wisdom heritage is drawing close. listed below are a few of my purposes for pondering this fashion: (1) brand new formative years depart their parent’s domestic to pursue their schooling after which to employment in towns. by way of so doing, the quantity of time for the adolescence to take care of common touch with their mom and dad and elders from whom they can have realized those clever sayings is decreased. (2) a few of them go away their nation of foundation at smooth a long time to international locations with various tradition, whereas others are born in overseas international locations. sometimes, either mom and dad and youngsters are born outdoor their cultural environments. (3) If mom and dad themselves have no idea a lot of those clever sayings, not to mention use them, they can't supply nor transmit to their young ones what they don't have or be aware of, no matter if the kids are round them as much as maturity. (4) Many, particularly one of the discovered, are inclined to lack curiosity in protecting even the features in their ethnic cultures, in part simply because they don't know or be afflicted by what A.J. A. Esen describes in his Ibibio Profile as “Ours-Is-Bad” and the “Foreign is sweet” syndrome. this can be a mental feeling which demeans something concerning one’s ethnic tradition and hails what's overseas, irrespective of how filthy and obnoxious the latter is.
Unlike many Ibibio folks of my age or older, i used to be blessed with mom and dad who had a mastery of those proverbs and
