. In modern times, the dress pattern of the Ijaw of the Niger Delta has taken a contemporary shape with the Etibo- a long shirt with straight collar down to knee length worn over trousers. While the Woko- a round neck, short-sleeved big shirt worn over trousers is fast becoming a ceremonial dress. Traditionally the chiefs and Kings of the land could be identified with big white wrapper or fabrics of the highest quality tied from their waist down to the ankles. This is enhanced with beads made of corals or ivory on their necks and wrists. In modern times just as changes has occurred in different aspect of life of the people, the royal regalia has also undergone a lot of changes. Now royal fathers are identified in longer versions of the Ebito known as ‘Don’ worn over trousers or wrappers. In most cases, the occasion determines the quality of the fabric to be sewn. However, the distinguishing factor is that their regalia comprises of various designs of hats and crowns and beads to go with. While the walking sticks is a very important part of every Ijaw man’s dress.
