Mrs.Ajayi Adeyinka Theresa


It is beyond dispute that intergroup relations has been an important feature of human society over the ages, and it is found in all cultures of the world. It is also a truism that intergroup relations, which implies all forms of interactions and relationships between or among peoples, especially of differing cultural, linguistic and even historical backgrounds constantly undergoes the motion of dynamism in nature, patterns, and depth. While growing, it tends to be positive or negative, integrative or disintegrative, functional or dysfunctional. Thus, its dynamism – a process of change and continuity- is manifested in countless human responses from their prior stages to by-products of ethno-religious conflicts, socio-political cleavages, class struggles and the clash of cultures. This underscores the reasons for the reconstruction of the history of intergroup relations in Nigeria. Therefore, this paper is a study of nature, patterns, institutions, and practice of intergroup relations between Hausa migrants' community in Ado Ekiti.
