The Igbo tribe resides in Eastern Nigeria. They are one of the three largest tribes in Nigeria. Along with the Yoruba tribe, they lay claim to the proverb Hillary Clinton made famous - "It takes a village to raise a child." Here are many more Igbo proverbs for you to enjoy.

Yes, Hillary Clinton wrote a book in the mid-90s called "It Takes A Village". The book is about her vision for the children in America.
