IDP Camps are centers harboring Persons who have been forced to flee their homes but remain within the country's borders. IDP Camps which were once unheard of in Tivland have become very common. Due to Fulani Herdsmen attacks on the people of Benue States and other parts of Nigeria, many have been forced to flee their homes and are now living as displaced persons in IDP camps across the State and the Country as a whole. There are currently about 20 IDP camps and over 130,000 displaced persons living in them in Benue state, and the number increases everyday as more and more people flee their homes to take refuge in these camps .

I have been fortunate to have been raised in two extreemely different cultures. I also had the privelige of learning and speaking two different languages and living for extended periods in both cultures. Born in America to Tiv parents, I lived in America for a great part my life, but I was raised in the ways of the Tiv. My parents saw the importance of cultural identity and at a very early age made it clear to us that we were Tiv people living in America. Today, I see the world and people differently because of my early exposure to many cultures. I have a greater appreciation for culture and humanity because of this.
With the world at our finger tips we can now travel virtually to any part of the world, learn a new culture and a new language without ever leaving the comfort of our homes. The desire of my heart is to bring as much of the Tiv culture and language to the world as I can.
I am not by any means an expert on Tiv language, culture and customs but I am willing to share the little that I know and the little that I have gathered through research. I want anyone who visits this website to leave with a little more knowledge about the Tiv people than they had before.
We have a simple mission and vision to share culture and language of Tiv People with the world, and by so doing preserve this wonderful culture and language for the future generations.
