Creating African Cultural Heritage Awareness by culturalheritag(m): 2:14pm On Mar 30, 2015
Society for the Study of Cultural Heritage (SSCH) is an organization responsible for the identification, promotion, preservation and creating awareness for African cultural heritage through national and international cultural heritage tourism for African student’s (High schools, colleges and university undergraduates) as well as among the continental Africa and African in the diasporas.

It has been observed that in some few years to come and if adequate measure is not taking African Cultural Heritage may go into extinction because of the fast adoption and adaptation of Africans to the ways of life of the western culture as well as problems associated with the African cultural heritage. It is a common known fact in many African societies today that, the western ways of life such as codes of manners, dresses, language, religion, rituals, customs, norms of behaviour such as law and morality, and systems of belief etc, has taking over the generality of life’s in the African societies, most especially among the young generation. This is unconnected with the fact that so many young African children are trained and brought up in the western ways of life which make them to believe that is the best way of life, whereas an African man will always be one, an example of this is the African in the diasporas whom are still regarded as Africans.

It is a common known fact that Africans, anywhere in the world have so many things in common (mostly the experience of colonialisation) such as the manner in which we do so many things, therefore giving us that strong connectivity, believe and concern that we all have some common ancestor’s and our language can be trace to one another. For instance, Yoruba language spoken in Nigeria among the Yoruba ethnic group can be trace to countries such as Republic of Congo, Republic of Benin and likewise Hausa language (also in Nigeria speaking among the hausa-fulani ethnic group in the northern part) can be found in many other countries in Africa such as Ghana, Mali, Sudan, Chad, Gambia, Niger Republic and many others. There are also same tribes in many Africa countries such as the Fulani tribes that are in Nigeria can also be found in countries like Niger Republic, Sudan, Somalia, Mali just to mention a few.

It is also a common known fact that, so many years after independent, the African elites have refused to go back to their culture and that is why we cannot have true development because development is about the people, while culture is the people and except the culture of the people is understood there cannot be a synergy between the people and development therefore, to have true perspective and for true development we must go back to our culture that is, to our past because the past is not dead and as a matter of fact according to Forkner,” the past is not past, the past is in the present”. In other words, the present is just a mere reconstruction of the past but unfortunately, the African elites are ever ready to go only in the direction where the west has been and this is a clear example of African minds inability to force itself out of the bondage and gridlock of western imperialism. Therefore, to attain real indigenous development in Africa and in the actual sense, Africans must have true reflection of their cultural state of mind reflected in their daily life’s because this will enhance their attainment of home grown and true development.
