Abstract

This study examines the ancestral dream, an element of ancestor veneration that has persisted, in African religious life since the arrival of their enslaved ancestors in this country. Although changes have occurred in ancestor veneration, this study demonstrates its continued importance in maintaining harmonious family relations. It therefore advises the modern Igbo people on the need to continued veneration of ancestors. Keywords: ancestor veneration; ring shout; ancestral dream; Kwanzaa
