FAMILY MORNING SALUTATIONS IN EDO KINGDOM

 

The following morning salutations are associated with the various families in Edo Kingdom:

 

Family Name

Salutation

Some Traditions and Customs Associated With Chieftaincy

The strict adherences to the custom and spirituality observances of the Edo land have always played a dominant role in the life of Edo people. It is therefore no wonder that most of these observances developed from their innate consciousness of their beliefs in their creator (osanobuwa or Osanobua or Osanoghodua) who they say can only be reached through the spirits of their ancestors or their departed parents or elder they term Enikaro (The originator). In like manner, the Edo have associated themselves with the past and it is not uncommon to find that every family is therefore traced to its original forebear; a fact which is borne out by their family morning salutations. In most cases, these morning salutations are interlinked with the various chieftaincy titles of the land. A common saying in Benin is that those who have no family salutation are either stranger or else not freeman, but even those who are supposed to belong to these groups (of strangers or non freeman) usually take the morning salutations of their masters as the case may be.
