Opportunism and the Igbo.
The part where the locusts came and the villagers collected them to cook and eat them made me think of how opportunistic and economic they are. In fact, they constantly worship the earth goddess for the things she gives them in their harvests. Similarly, in the chapter we read from "An Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano, the author mentions many examples of how the Igbo people are in fact very economic as well. I remember in particular the palm wine and how they also harvested the same tree for nuts and oils.
