GLEAMS OF HISTORY IN EPIE-ATISSA LEISURE GAMES 

Journal Title: The Dawn Journal - Year 2012, Vol 1, Issue 2

Abstract

This paper examines the historical contents of the traditional leisure games in Epie-Atissa in the Niger Delta. While not neglecting the anthropological and sociological dimensions of the games, it pays significant attention to the historical information embedded in the games. The games contain inferences of economic and social activities of the people. They similarly provide clues to migratory historical traditions of the Epie-Atissa people. On the whole, the paper has enhanced the knowledge of the history of Epie-Atissa through its analysis of the contents of the traditional games.
