Program Description   Compare ritual and royal objects from the Yoruba and Edo peoples of Nigeria to learn how their rulers maintain worldly authority with the assistance of supernatural forces. Students will delight in examining a colorful beaded crown which empowers a Yoruba ruler and a three hundred year old bronze sculpture which establishes legitimacy for an Edo king. These and other stunning objects introduce divination, mythology and communication with ancestors to your class.

2. Introduce sculptures and explain historical/cultural significance.
3. Compare and contrast Yoruba and Benin cultures.
4. Ask students how Americans honor historical figures.

peoples—particularly in regards to attaining political power—which are reflected in their
works of art.
