Yoruba



ETHNONYMS: Anago, Awori, Egba, Egbado, Ekiti, Ibadan, Ife, Ifonyin, Igbomina, Ijebu, Ijesha, Ketu, Kwara, Ondo, Owo, Oyo, Shabe


Cultural Relations

Neighboring groups are the Bariba, Nupe, Hausa, Igala, and Idoma to the north; the Edo (Benin), Ijo, Urhobo, and Igbo to the east; and the Fon, Ewe, and Egun to the west. Since precolonial times, there has been extensive contact among population groups and, consequently, much cultural blending in the borderlands.

IT IS VERY APPRECIATIVE FOR SOME GROUP OF PEOPLE TO DESIGN SOMETHING OF THIS NATURE FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE ENTIRE POPULACE, ESPECIALLY THE YORUBA RESAECHERS.
