Storytelling Through Yoruba Names
In Nigeria, in the Yoruba ethnic group, names have an immense significance. They are wound up in religious meanings, didactic messages, and family history. Therefore, within a singular name, a story unfolds.
This project explores the meanings and stories intertwined within the names of young adults of Yoruba descent as they tell a nuanced story about their lives and their relationship with their Yoruba heritage.
