Trans: The bow and arrows I used in "Ògbórí Ẹlẹ́mọ̀ṣọ́' were the same ones my grandfather, a warrior, used. A group, Alaroye, recently came to inform me of their desire to have the weapon in a museum they were setting up at the University of Ibadan. I let them have it. I thought that the museum option would be beneficial to both the donor and visitors to the museum. I also thought about how that option can help promote Yoruba culture.
