This site is about the Nigerian cultures seen
through the eyes of a Nigerian family - the Oloruntoba family resident
in Kwara State of Nigeria. The State is fondly called the
"State of Harmony" and the State Capital Ilorin, is the "Gateway" between the North
and the South of the country.
We offer on this site, unique insights of Nigerian
cultures in relation to her agriculture, arts, family norms, lifestyles,
folklores, geography, history, and home making. To relate these to the
different cultures around the world, we invite people and
families in other lands, who are
interested in cultural values, to visit us regularly so that we can
learn from each other. We believe that the understanding of the
way of life of peoples around the world is one good way to
preserve world peace and harmony.
