ok, well from the Igbo I know, "iri ji" is "to eat yam" . . . . "nri ji" literally is "the food yam" or simply "yam".

In igboland can an osu or ume host the celebration of iri ji or break the kola for the community ,whereby the elders refused to participate.
Whatever your title is, to get to your post above. . which "community" are you talking about? And I don't understand what the bolded is supposed to mean. Ok, I'll let someone else answer you since I don't know bout dem "ceremonies".
