The culture of a people are pointers to the ways they see and treat living and non living things. From the Igbo worldview, the interconnectedness of everything and everyone are presented in the culture, traditions, proverbs, metaphors, myths, legends, folktales and many other forms of oral tradition. The universe according to the Igbo worldview is made up of uwa ndi mmuo and uwa ndi di ndu (the physical and the spiritual). They two mingle as most of the time the spiritual impinge on the life of the living. The living thread carefully so as not to upset the spirit world and cause imbalance in the order of things in the land of the living.
