Ebira Brochure

Ebira means behaviour when translated literally with ethics and hospitality as compliments. The unique features of Ebira culture with its ethnic aestheticism are appreciated most in the event of traditional marriages. Ebira people are republican by nature, outspoken and very hard working. Farming and cloth- weaving are occupations for which the Ebiras are well known. Primary crops grown for export are yam and cassava. Guinea corn is an important local commodity as the staple of most meals and is used in the brewing of beer. Due to abundance of rivers and streams on the Niger-Benue plateau, fishing is conducted by individual households. In recent years, larger fish farms have been developed by private and public firms.
