“IYE AJA” means Umbilical Cord in the Itsekiri language of Nigeria. The project funded by Heritage Lottery Fund aims to highlight and celebrate the ingenuity of Diaspora Africans in managing to retain an active commitment to many customs and values of their forbears whilst also adapting them to suit living in the UK. The project was designed as a response to IROKO’s consultation with some African families. The consultation revealed that people find ways to find comfort in their lives in England, especially through adapting aspects of their customs and traditions.
