Our Mission

Igbo-American Heritage Foundation is a nonprofit organizations focused on maintenance, promotion and protection of Igbo culture and communities especially in diaspora.

Frontier Culture Museum of Virginia estimates that around 38% of captives taken to Virginia were from the Bight of Biafra. The Bight of Biafra in Nigeria identifies the geographical residence for the largest population of Igbo people. Igbo culture contributed to the creolized African American culture and is perhaps evident in such cultural vestiges as the Jonkonnu (sounds like Ifejioku / Ahia-Njoku) parades of North Carolina.
