Traditional Royal Hat

2,200.00

The ‘red cap’ worn by chiefs in Igboland and some part of the South-South region of Nigeria symbolizes authority,
tradition, and culture; and it also represents the entire authority, and
power in Igbo culture.

Putting on the red cap is not an all-comers affair in Igboland as
there are always a select number of individuals who are entitled to wear
this special cap (especially with eagle feather which in its own right
signifies prominence).

When one has been conferred a chieftaincy title in Igboland, it is
proper that he must wear the red cap when making appearances in formal
traditional events or ceremonies or when he plays a formal traditional
role in his family, clan or community.

The wearers of the Igbo red cap are usually men who have fulfilled
certain obligations and maintained the standards laid down in their
various communities.

They are recognized in the different communities in Igboland by names
such as ‘Nzes’, ‘Ichies’, ‘Ozos’, ‘Ogbuefis’ and others.; who are not
expected to misrepresent, cheat or enroll in any project that can lead
the traditional formation into disrepute.
