Description

“If children are our future, it’s important that they remember the past because if they don’t, no one will. Who, if not parents, can impart family histories and heritage upon children? Nkem DenChukwu’s inspirational collection, the issues of bloodline and heritage are tackled head-on, along with the importance of one’s culture.

In Part I, DenChukwu delves into the tribal heritage of the Igbos of Eastern Nigeria. She explains it vividly, how being born in any one country does not determine who you really are. Instead, your bloodline represents your true heritage. In understanding the difference, DenChukwu believes you can better understand yourself.

In Part II, she transitions into lucid life tales to show the beauty in a language, how one’s culture and the lack thereof, can affect one’s thought processes and behavior. It is possible to lose an accent or assimilate into a new culture. It is also possible to forget your heritage, and in this forgetfulness, people lose much.”

  • No matter where you live there are things that unite us that might sometimes surprise us. I am learning more and more that no matter what part of the world you are in, there are emotions and beliefs that bring us closer together and help us to better understand the choices and actions of others.

    Through her book TRIBAL ECHOES author Nkem DenChukwu looks at the people of Africa and all that they have to bring to the world: through the meanings behind their names, the customs that unite them and the problems and challenges that connect them with the rest of us.

    I read this book really fascinated with the stories that the author shares, outlining for the reader that we are not as set apart from others as we might want to think or have believed. There is the beauty of the people and the tragedies of the people, but there is also the hope of the people that should allow give us all something to work towards and believe in.

    Captivating and haunting at the same time, TRIBAL ECHOES shows that people can be the same no matter where they are.

  • I absolutely LOVE TRIBAL ECHOES. From the minute i picked up this book I couldn’t put it down. The book does something to you in the sense of the writing. It is very well written and you can almost feel like your in each story that is given. As a teenager in high school I was really given a chance in this book to understand my culture to a whole new depth. I was able to really appreciate my culture and see what it stands for. When next someone asks me where I come from I will hold my head up high with a new found pride and say, “I am Nigerian and proud of it.” One of the stories that I really admired was the story about a young lady with the name of Nicole rudly talking to Mrs. Nkem DenChukwu in a college physics class. She automaticly didn’t like Mrs. DenChukwu just for where she came from and maybe felt a little jealous towards the particlular situation. The words “all the way from the jungle……” really caught my attention. It made me realize the preception given towards people from different countries and i knew in my heart that this idealogy needs to be diminished in our society that we live in. As this book clearly states, we need to be educated on where we really come from because the America that we live in is a country full of immigrants whether you like it or not. Being able to trace our roots and see where our ancestors were born is vital and important to moving forward in life once all these traditons, customs, values, and morals ,given to us by our culture, are put into action and appreciated. Overall the book is a must read and I recommend this book to everyone and anyone! Beautiful work Mrs. Nkem DenChukwu.
    Part 2?

    “Having just read “TRIBAL ECHOES,” I am convinced this book is a must read for everyone. Not only is it compelling and a wake-up call for all persons, especially WOMEN: the revelations, the insight, the narrative itself, distinguish this work as one done by a truly gifted young woman. Its narrative and delivery distinguish it as a work given by a truly gifted young woman. Shocking, mind-blowing, emotion stirring, shocking, and inspiring; even the real skeptics will find it difficult to put the book down. TRIBAL ECHOES is thoroughly interesting, shocking, thought provoking…..a must read.”

  • Tribal Echoes is not only culturally driven, but also very inspiring and informative. This book delves into the Igbo culture and the need for the younger generation to keep it going in a fast changing world; especially where afrocentricity, perhaps is on the verge of extinction. In reading the book I got a sense of the author’s pride in her tribe, the Igbo tribe of eastern Nigeria. The first part of the book uses anecdotes to reveal the Igbo culture in a relatable way irrespective of your origin, while the second part of the book shares fictional stories which are inspirational and reflective. As a Nigerian and a mother of three I see exactly the conflict children face in trying to keep an identity going in a world where there is infinite access to the media, Internet, technology, and you name it. I purchased this book because I was curious, and I am happy to say I got more than I paid for. This book by Nkem Denchukwu restores pride and sheds light on the Igbo culture and is definitely worth the investment….Tribal Echoes: Restoring Hope.
