Re: History of Tikar people - New Info

As a Tikar from Nkambe in the North West Province of Cameroon, I must say I am quite delighted to learn of the enthusiasm of everyone in this forum regarding their ancestry.

I migrated to the United States a few years ago, and as a Tikar born and raised in the grassfields(savanah) of Nkambe,I have a lot to share regarding Tikar culture,(norms,mores,customs,rites) and other aspects of daily life. The language that I speak(limbum) is just one of several spoken by the Tikar.

Finally,in response to concerns about where specifically some of the people in this forum came from, I would say we cannot pinpoint exactly whether they came from present day Cameroon,Nigeria,Gabon, etc. Let us bear in mind that during the slave trade, Africa had not been colonised. Africa was mostly divided and named into different countries after colonialism. So the Tikar people who spread all over central and parts of west Africa could now be in any one of the countries in this region. The most important thing is that we know we are Tikar and I think the particular country is immaterial.
Thanks.
