“Hi, my name is Ekiuwa Aire, the author at Our Ancestories.
As a mother of two, born and raised in Benin City, Nigeria, I noticed a lack of diversity in the children’s bookstore section.
Most importantly, I noticed a lack of narrative from African history. We have a rich history that started long before colonization. Stories of African men and women who succeeded against all odds and lived with tales to inspire the next generation... Yet very few books covering their story.
Although my initial research into my African heritage was motivated by my two daughters, it soon transpired into a mission…
I’m happy to say I’m on the path to making this mission a reality. And I am excited to share the stories I’ve discovered about our beautiful heritage with you and your little ones.” - Ekiuwa Aira
