Book Discussion: Akiga Sai's History of the Tiv

Martin Akiga, Bankole Olayebi, Richard Fardon, Olly Owen

Akiga Sai witnessed first-hand the incursions of British colonial power into the Tiv-speaking area of Nigeria and began to write down the history, customs, memories and experiences of Tiv communities. He produced an extraordinary document: 380 pages of typescript in the Tiv language. Parts of this were translated and published by the International African Institute as Akiga’s Story in 1939.
