Abstract
  • This thesis is an effort to formalize and document some of the changes occuring in the Warwar Valley of Gongola State, Nigeria, West Africa. The documentation will comprise a photographic study over time accompanied by an ethnographic narrative. Information gathered from photographic images, field notes and the anthropological record will then be applied to a cultural-ecological model based on the theory of Julian Steward. The Mambilla people inhabiting the Warwar Valley are changing their traditional agricultural land use patterns and value system due to the influx of new ideas, notably the introduction of a cash economy. This cultural change has affected environmental change, observable in soil erosion.
