Cultural Ethos of the Yoruba

by Olubayo Lawore

The notion of culture embraces many facets of life including the arts, tradition and behaviour. This study is concerned with the culture of the Yoruba people in relation to questions of identity and interaction with other civilisations, particularly the influences of Anglo-American culture, and the Christian and Islamic religions. Aspects considered include: the family; greetings and compliments; respect; table manners; hospitality; consolation and bereavement; characteristics; governance; and taboos and superstitions.
