Colonial Rule

How colonial rule effected the Igbo people

What African nation would play an important role in British colonization and missionary work? Sierra Leone
In what two ways did the British plan to colonize? Conversion and conquest
What formalized the colonization of Africa? The Berlin Conference
How was the hierarchy organized under settler colonialism? White settlers installed themselves over the indigenous people creating a political/ social hierarchy based on perceived racial superiority and separation.
What did the Group Areas Act of 1950 do? It relegated non-whites to townships designated only for their racial group.
How was non-settler colonialism different from settler colonialism? It didn't result in a permanent residence of whites, instead the colonial administration implemented a system of gov't called "indirect rule".
How were colonies defined under indirect rule? As possessions of the European nations that controlled them.
How were nations, like Nigeria, governed under indirect rule? Colonial administrators governed through the traditional rulers or those they appointed. As a result the administrators didn't often have direct contact (as in direct rule) with the Africans.
Why did the Europeans find it especially difficult to deal with the Igbo people? There was an absence of traditional rulers, they have a long history of resistance to domination, and the Europeans found them difficult to suppress and were faced with several Igbo revolts.
How did the British respond to Igbo resistance? They appointed local administrators to enforce policies, collect taxes, and contain resistance. They also deployed the Igbo from other regions as members of military expeditions.
When did the destruction and alienation of indigenous institutions begin to emerge in Things Fall Apart? With the establishment of churches in Mbanta and Umuofia, as well as the establishment of the Native Court in Umuofia.
What is the "kotma"? "Kotma" means "court man" or "court messengers". It was a system the administrators installed, but many of those serving on the kotma were strangers to Umuofia. They were used to enforce policies and suppress the people.
After the District Commissioner arrests the 6 leaders of Umuofia, he tells the men "We shall not do you any harm..if you agree to cooperate with us. We have brought peaceful administration to that you may be happy." What's ironic about this? Firstly, the men are in handcuffs. In addition, the commissioner imposes a fine on Umuofia for the release of their leaders.
