sisi, i can accept everything, except that fidora hat. its not african tradition, but something of the europeans. the ijaws need to drop that hat thingy.

theres something terribly wrong with all these. makes my skin crawl.

all of it is way too european. i know ijos were fishermen.  the pics you're posting and attempting to pass of as traditional makes it look like they walked around unclad until the europeans came. other than the coral beads, everything else is freaky. the bowler hat, the colorful faggy hats, the black and gold robe in your 2nd post - alls gotta go! the walking sticks too. grin

i think some of the attires are new inventions, or recently introduced.

as per the bowler hats- a legacy of colonial times i believe.

or liberian or something?

Ijaw chic, do you now believe Ijaws are uncertain about their origin!! Look at the joke you are posting here in your effort to promote a culture that never existed!! Later now you will have the temerity to come open you mouth where the children of the great Igbo nation are having conversation!! pants get size.

t.  the pics you're posting and attempting to pass of as traditional makes it look like they walked around unclad until the europeans came. other than the coral beads, everything else is freaky. the bowler hat, the colorful faggy hats, the black and gold robe in your 2nd post - alls gotta go! the walking sticks too. grin

We were all unclad till either the Arabs or Europeans came.A culture can develop anytime.There is no time limit. Kalabaris and Ibanis adopted a dressing based on their interaction with the Scottish and Portuguese.They modified and Africanized it. The Igbos further modified it and fused it with Bini influence to get theirs.It is highly allowed.

When pics of Igbos are posted, they look like Yoruba. When Ijaw pics are posted they look Yoruba. Why don't you post the pictures of your own people so that we know how they look. Instead of hijacking other people's thread.

Re: Traditional Eastern Ijaw Attire In Pictures by aribisala0(m): 12:10pm On Nov 19, 2011
too much European influence
are those hats Ijaw?
i wonder how many slaves were exchanged for those glittering baubles

we were not all unclad
Binis were not unclad,
Akan of Ghana were not with their kente
The Yorubas were definitely not and have been weaving Aso Oke and Adire for centuries.
those who were unclad know themselves

Ya all are entitled to your own OP
Ijaws are proud of their rich cultural heritage,
We dont see anything wrong with our traditional attires.
be it bowler hat, walking stick, flying hat it is here to stay. .
Even Non Ijaws in rivers state admire and wear  Ijaw clothes

@Ijawgirl, nice pictures and very colorful indeed. I always enjoy viewing pictures of the cultural attires of the different nations in Nigeria. For those who are more interested in whether a fedora hat is Ijaw heritage or European - it's part of the culture of the Ijaws and that's what matters
