Traditional Stones in Pre-Colonial Bombe Bakunduland (Cameroon) (Published)

The research dealt with the Bakundu Traditional Stones in Pre-Colonial Bombe Bakunduland(Cameroon.)   The traditions and cultures of African ethnic groups have remaind the priorities in constructing and reconstructing of the legacy and heritage of the continent. The Bakundus have brandished the effectiveness of their tradition in relinguishing remnants and totems (stones)and its legacies with historical justifications for consumption. Historical sources have broadcast justifictions of worth, capabilities, abilties, and belief systems of the Bakundus and their traditional stones. Such arguments set the platform through which the Bakundu ancestral shrine possessed traditional stones which equally possess spiritual metaphysical powers unveiling the traditional cults and belief systems.
