It's being generalized to other tribes too, my dear.

why do people always jump up anytime someone identifies yoruba?

what's the fear?

the yoruba looking men in the earlier photos probably have maternal yoruba ancestry.

Ijaw-girl,
Imiegbam

for all those Useless people talking trash about ijaw tribe and culture or having similarities with the Europeans, it is simply because of the very cordial and long relationship we had with Brits and Portuguese in which we shared alot and had to learn few necessary WAYS of "expressing" our Culture. we didn't necessarily take the white man's culture.

That's expected, for Eastern Nigerian cultures to intermingle. Intertribal marriages plenty for that side.
Re: Traditional Eastern Ijaw Attire In Pictures by tpia5: 9:31pm On Nov 19, 2011
These names are a bit over the top nah?

I mean, i`m just saying.

Unless the people bearing them are of european descent.

And what happened to the regular ijaw names- i mean those long ones which are a bit difficult to pronounce.

Anyway, let's not derail the thread.

Re: Traditional Eastern Ijaw Attire In Pictures by odumchi: 9:41pm On Nov 19, 2011
Just to make a clarification. The top/bowl hat has nothing to do with European ifluences or etc. It is simply a political symbol for minorities particularly those in the Niger Delta and SS. Ijaws, Edos, Urhobos, and Itsekiri all wear them. Just as the red cap is a political symbol for the Igbos so is the bowl hat for the people listed above.

@Ijawgirl these are interesting. Could you find a photo of the president with his native attire?
Re: Traditional Eastern Ijaw Attire In Pictures by amor4ce(m): 9:57pm On Nov 19, 2011
Any pre-1960 (independence) pictures?

i'm not sure what you mean by the top hat has nothing to do with europeans.

You do know those hats were sometimes payment for slaves right?

Besides i i believe they were used in liberia as well by the american returnees.
Re: Traditional Eastern Ijaw Attire In Pictures by tpia5: 10:01pm On Nov 19, 2011
You'll notice the traditional attire (the one gej normally ears- dont know what it's called) has a faint resemblance to coat tails.

Is the ijaws the same as the cross river state people? My aunt married last year(she is from cross river state) and her husband is Igbo but she wore what I am seeing here, the attire, including the hat in the second to last photo, beaded walking stick and heavy bead necklaces.

No Cross River is Efik however every group in the east adorns themselves heavily with neck beads. :p
