Abstract

This thesis counters the on-going colonial emphasis in historical literature to examine the long history of the Warri Kingdom. The Warri kingdom that has been in existence for over five centuries ruled by a dynasty of Olus (Kings). By looking at this extensive pre-colonial history, this study also examines what has long captivated the individual Itsekiri: the deep roots of Itsekiri identity in the Niger Delta region and the role of pre-colonial history in contemporary life.
