THE NEW YAM FESTIVAL.

THE NEW YAM FESTIVAL.

THE NEW YAM FESTIVAL.
Every well meaning race has certain things which make them unique and different from others. It is defined that culture is the way a given group of people lives their own life in their own environment. As such, it can be said that culture is one of the desiderata that makes a people different from others. Igbo people are a group of people in Nigeria, who have their own language and culture. The culture of Igbo people is so rich that it cannot be quantified. The picture above shows a king in Igboland slicing a roasted tuber of yam during a NEW YAM FESTIVAL.

The NEW YAM FESTIVAL is one aspect of the culture of the Igbo people. The new yam festival is a festival that the Igbo people everywhere in Igboland and beyond use to mark the beginning of the harvesting of, not just yam from their farm land, but every other harvestable. For the Igbo people, yam is the king of everything planted in both the farm and garden, and it is the most stable food item in Igboland. Hence the need to thank God, not only because the items in the farmland, which they planted did well, but also that the people are kept alive by the mercy of God, to reap the fruit of their (farm) labour.
