Abstract:

This paper focuses on the issue of shielding the environment through indigenous context or ideas. It portrays the increased rate at which the environment is being destroyed since the arrival of Christianity in Nigeria. It highlights the efficient ways by which people of Igbo protected their environment and thereby makes an attempt to lead a harmonious life with nature. The research reveals the truth that the fullness of human existence on earth cannot be achieved outside a cordial relation to the environment. The paper again advocates that the principles followed by the ancestors to tackle the ecological crisis is still relevant to the modern era. It stresses the inner urge of Adichie to create harmony between nature and human beings for their mutual benefit.

Key Words: Igbo, folk tale, tradition, environment.
