In a world where it is easy to forget one’s root, “Tribal Echoes“ is a book that helps highlight the importance of being proud of one’sÂ cultureÂ and heritage. Written by talented writter Nkem DenChukwu, Tribal EchoesÂ embraces the Ibo culture and heritage in a fun, engaging, and classy way.
In Part I, DenChukwu delves into the tribal heritage of the Igbos of Eastern Nigeria. She explains it vividly, how being born in any one country does not determine who you really are. Instead, your bloodline represents your true heritage. In understanding the difference, DenChukwu believes you can better understand yourself.
In Part II, she transitions into lucid life tales to show the beauty in a language, how one’s culture and the lack thereof, can affect one’s thought processes and behavior. It is possible to lose an accent or assimilate into a new culture. It is also possible to forget your heritage, and in this forgetfulness, people lose much.
In an age where diversity is the norm, DemChukwu Â makes it clear that it is important that all cultures retain the essence of their heritage. Tribal Echoes is a great read and a resource to help build up and retain the great Ibo family and culture. A Good Read! Recommended!
