|Abstract: ||This study sets out to examine the main factors responsible for the moral confusion leading to tension and stress that obtained in Tivland between 1911 and 1975. The problems that arose are considered against a background discoujrse on the values and belief systems of traditional Tiv culture and on the values and belief systems introduced by the agents of European culture.. The main purpose of this discourse is to identify areas of clast between these two cultures and to consider the implications of these for the teachirig of moral education in schools.
Two main approaches were employed in this study. The first approach entailed oral interviews with 96 adults in the Tiv area. The second approach involved a series :of practical teaching and data collection in actual .classroom situations in a primary school in Tivland. ..
The research has e3tablished that:
(a) many aspects of the christian ethics clashedI with he Tiv traditional religion, confusing a great number of he ethnic group;
(b) modernity as brought by European gents alienated the youths who subsequently denounced traditionalism;
(c) new institutions established by colonialism, such as chiefs, replaced the gerontocrats in the governance of the ethnic group.
To minimise the clltural conflicts, strategies have been suggested for formal teaching of moral education in schools.|
