Historically, Ndi-Ichie are a Council of that occupy a very high place in the Igbo society. They are well-regarded personalities; they are elected individuals of valued demeanor; honest, resourcefulness, with comprehensive moral reputations and other virtues. They are believed to command special connectivity with the ancestors, and at all times held in high regard.  In Houston, the fourth largest city in America where Igbos a densely populated, Ndi-Ichie Cultural Club has practically downloaded the philosophy of cultural attachment of the Igbos through   art, literature, costumes, customs, education, fashion, and cultural festivals. 

IgboFest Houston - Cultural Relevance

At Ndi-Ichie Cultural Club and Ndi-Ichie Youth Cultural Foundation, we aim, as a MISSION,  to reclaim cultural capital where it’s been damaged or lost.  We work with the children, young adults, those who are most impressionable, and those who are most in need to learn and practice. Our focus is on the Nigerian, African diaspora communities as well as the greater Houston metroplex, through staging annual cultural festivals, Igbo language competition, cultural dance and folklore competition, community awareness, and educational opportunities. We firmly believe it takes a village to raise a child, and if you work on creating the most well equipped society you can, so many problems simply work themselves out.

With that desire in my heart, I preside over Ndi-Ichie Youth Cultural Foundation. We’re all looking to make a difference in our world and I believe that by focusing on promoting, fostering, and showcasing Igbo culture and folklore outside Igbo ancestral homeland make substantial impact.  While I humbly invite to browse our domain, and be a part of our Igbo culture, it would be relevant to know that the world is made up of great cultures and if you foster them positively, they’ll pay huge dividends - in love, international understanding, and a better world.

The Cradle of Elder Statesmanship

In today’s competitive world, indigenes migrate from their other countries in the quest of a better living. Igbo land being thousands of miles away from Houston, a retention of the tradition becomes a challenge. This challenge dovetails the mission of Ndi-Iche to  reclaim cultural capital where it’s been damaged or lost. This is why Ndi Ichie focuses on the Nigerian, African diaspora communities as well as the greater Houston where they stage annual cultural festivals, Igbo language competition, cultural dance and folklore competition to mitigate possible loss of the Igbo tradition.
