Description NIGED:SOCIAL:CULTURE:SEP 1959 The North's Great Durbar Solemn And Eerie: The notes of the pipers wail across the arena, recalling of a strange and glorious past From all parts of the North they came. The bold cavalry-men on their fiery steeds, their swords and spears glistening in the sun. The women from the Zaria Province, tall and erect in their colourful robes. The men dancer, bursting with smiles and vitality. Such a day had not been before, the day a durbar was held to celebrate self-government in the Northern Region of Nigeria. It was enormous, vast, diverse, majestic. Taking part were over 10 000 men and women, 3000 horses. Dancing and singing crowds came from all thirteen provinces of the Northern Region.
