Culture is the believe, habit and opinion of a group of people, society, tribe or nation about life generally and the way we live it.

Therefore cultural attitude will be individual acceptance and undertaking of these believes habits and opinion of the people. The cultural attitude toward whether a person can own word and knowledge will depend upon the current believes of the individual. Take my family as an example, am from Yoruba culture in the western side of Nigeria, we are described as Omoaromokeye Omoiwinjobi, because in my father’s compound- Iwoye, they origin of our genetics were fertile and produce many children. The believe were that the spirit- evil spirit were with the children in bringing them in. these spirit were paganism spirit but my father made me to understand that as a Christian we accept that our family is fetile but the children were given by God not by the evil spirit but by the Holy spirit. In these believe I can own my own word and head up as a proud descendant of Iwoye and the Abolarin’s, whereas my great and grandparents believe that the god of osun i.e is god of water gave them or helped them to bring these children into the world. I as Christian believe that children are heritage or blessings from the Lord and He is keeping watch over us.

More children in those days mean more wealth for the family because those children served them in the farm. They use them to farm, d larger the number of children the larger the farm and the wealthier and respected the father or family, whereas my parents gave birth to four (4) kids in which am one of them and we believed we were given to our parents by God and we are successful because my parents committed us into the hands of God. I can own my own word to this Christian attitude as against the paganism attitude of my great-grandparents.

Another example of the cultural attitude of the Yoruba’s...
