Semiotics of Tiv Oral Poetry

By Aboki Associates

Summary

There is an immensurable wealth of untapped indigenous
creativity and cultural artistry in the heartland of Tiv which, if
adequately uncovered would add to our understanding of the
cultural profile, disposition, life, conduct and mind of the Tiv
people (which many construe as being warlike, aggressive and
recalcitrant). Semiotic of Tiv Oral Poetry provides a lucid
background for the understanding of Tiv cultural aesthetics.
This is indeed timely as the expressive culture of Tiv people has
received little or extremely sparse scholarly publications, despite
a rich cultural heritage. The book unearths the largely
unexplored wealth of the Tiv poetic tradition which is the
repository of themes drawn from Tiv customs, cosmology, beliefs
and practices. The semiotic approach which emphasizes the
communicational character of all cultural artifacts, probes into
the recesses of Tiv oral poetry, measures its real and symbolic
depths and ultimately judges its social significance as an
aesthetic artifact and as a cultural mosle of the Indigenous
Communication System (ICS).

Abstract

There is an immensurable wealth of untapped indigenous
creativity and cultural artistry in the heartland of Tiv which, if
adequately uncovered would add to our understanding of the
cultural profile, disposition, life, conduct and mind of the Tiv
people (which many construe as being warlike, aggressive and
recalcitrant). Semiotic of Tiv Oral Poetry provides a lucid
background for the understanding of Tiv cultural aesthetics.
This is indeed timely as the expressive culture of Tiv people has
received little or extremely sparse scholarly publications, despite
a rich cultural heritage. The book unearths the largely
unexplored wealth of the Tiv poetic tradition which is the
repository of themes drawn from Tiv customs, cosmology, beliefs
and practices. The semiotic approach which emphasizes the
communicational character of all cultural artifacts, probes into
the recesses of Tiv oral poetry, measures its real and symbolic
