Abstract
Chinua Achebe’s works have been a source for the postcolonial generation and writers to understand the glory of precolonial status of their Nation, harsh realities of colonialism and challenging period of Postcolonialism for restoration of cultural identities and history of Africa. This Paper is an attempt to highlight and give an insight into dynamically and epistemologically developed myth of Igbo people that acts as potential storehouse of history in reestablishing the African’s Nation and their Identity. The paper also tries to explore Achebe’s intellectual endeavors to encounter European’s distorted image of African People and their culture through Igbo’s native myth.
