Adele Dejak, by way of her mother, belongs to the Tiv nation of Benue State, Nigeria. Scattered through Nigeria and Cameroon, few members of the Tiv community remain but most impressively, they have managed to uphold their customs and traditions in the face of sweeping modernism.                                                   Nothing was documented of the culture-rich Tiv people until the 1900s.

The print and geometry are a staple of Senegalese architecture and design.
