I am so glad that these few people have started this huge task of not lettingthe rich Mopkwe culture die. My prayer is that many more may join you espcially the elders back home to impact you with more wisdom as you dig into the culture.Eyole

James Caldwell

Is there a grammar and/or dictionary for the Bakweri language available for English speakers?

James Caldwell

Forgive me. I have now read on Wikipedia that the language of the Bakweri people is called Mokpwe. So I am interested in a grammar of the Mokpwe language for English speakers.

Dear editors,

A friend referred your site to my today. After perusing a few feature articles, I am beginning to be hooked on the forum. The lay out is neat and clean, the subject matter, very educational.

I am so attached to Bakwerirama so much so that, I am beginning to nurse feelings of using your template to start one for my people (Manyu) too.

Once more, thank you all for the excellent job in maintaining this forum. Please keep it up.

Best regards.

Nfor Atem F. Momanyi.

I stumbled on this website by chance and I have not stopped thanking my ancestors for inspiring others with this idea. I stand as a good example of a Bakwerian who knows very little about his heritage. In an age of global information technology, I see this site as a huge step in revitalizing the Bakweri people by providing them with opportunities to discover their heritage.
I commend the initiators of this site for their tired less effort . Judging from my ignorance, I wonder the fate of my children. I hope this site will continue reaching and teaching Bakwerians of their rich heritage. My contribution will be to inform more Bakwerians of this site and to encourage them to support Bakwerirama. I urge you not to cease in your steady effort.

Ngonja

i'll like to have a clear understanding of the Origin of the Bakwerians.could any be of help?

Emile  Meoto

Hello Ngonja,
I think Wikipedia has something about the origins of the Bakweris. There are two rival theories I found there:oral tradition says we originated from Mboko, the area southwest of Mount Cameroon and then migrated to our present home east of the mountain in the mid-18th century.

A rival Bakweri tradition says we descend from Mokuri or Mokule, a brother of the Duala's forebear Ewale, who migrated to the Mount Cameroon area for hunting.

I don't know which to take. Perhaps an elder person could help there.

Ngonja

Hi Emilie Meoto,
Thanks for the information.i'll check that out and hope to have what i'm looking for most especially finding out about traditional marriage: how our old days parents use to give their daughter for marriage and also accompanied their sons in asking a had in marriage.
Thanks and God Bless!
If u'll have any information again on that, i'll be very greatful

Erna

Hi Ngonja, you can find details about Bakweri traditional marriages at Mola Mbua Ndoko's blog at: http://www.mbuandoko.com/2006/05/the_bakweri_tra.html

Ngonja

Nate Teke

Hey Hans i am glad to meet u here as well pls hit me up on sally_mokoto@yahoo.com hope all is well with you.

A true historical rendering of the Bakweri people will find that Bakwerism is a construct of colonial politics. The concept of Bakweri didn't even exist until the advent of colonialism. I don't even think Bakweri was even a word until the 17th century.

A study of Cameroonian Politics following its liberation shows that Paul Biya in order to keep the country divided and conquered continues to inflame the divisive seeds planted by the Britsh. While the Europeans continue to unite by creating such things as WTO and the European Union, African countries like Cameroon, wrangle over little pieces of land ignoring the global economy. Though understanding and acknowledging history of ethnic cultures in Cameroon is important, it should be done in the context of promoting diversity and acceptance not for political power. To borrow a phrase from Benjamin Franklin "unite or die".
