...where CULTURE IS A WAY OF LIVING !!!! This was 1960
When you come to Ibeku, you will sense the excitement in the air about all things cultural. As you walk into the villages with clan members, all along our winding raods, streets you will hear the whistle sound from the birds on trees and people sitting talking to each other, independent activities in motion, you will be caught up in the energy. Turn a corner to find an AMA, a public place. Suddenly, you will find yourself listening to indigents with stories of the day, children playing.
