Today Is Lucumi-Olukumi Day 2020

The Lucumi are Igbos who were aboriginal to Ile Ife in times past. Today, they can be found in Cuba, and in the Igbo parts of the Niger Delta.

They can most clearly be found in the Olukumi speaking parts of the Niger Delta. Places like Ugbodu, and Ubuluku among others.

These areas still speak a version of Lucumi in addition to the conventional Igbo language.

We salute the Lucumi of the world and wish their culture continious flourishing.

We call on Igbos to continue to promote Lucumi culture. It is am Igbo culture that must not be allowed to fade away.
