This chapter examines the ways in which Ibibio and Annang made sense of colonialism and Christianity. It traces their cultural engagements with European rule and religion during the period that led up to the most significant watershed of the colonial period, the Women's War of 1929. It concerns the ways in which uneven relations of power, between men and women, educated and illiterate, titled and non-titled, were negotiated within shifting terrains of social, religious and political contest.

Keywords: Ibibio; Annang; colonialism; Christianity; Women's War of 1929; power
