Zane Flannery | 27 comments The source of the confict with Mbaino is that one of the Mbaino had killed a young girl of the Umuofia in the village, and that must be ballanced either through war or a sacrefice.

The village of Mbaino murdered one of the women from Umuofia so as usual the village of Umuofia asked for a compensation of a young virgin and a young man or they go to war.

Marianne Lara | 26 comments A daughter of Umuofia was killed by Mbaino. So Umuofia made Mbaino chose between war or giving them a young man and a virgin. They chose to give Umoufia the young man and the virgin because Umoufia was very feared by everyone. Okonkwo had been picked to carry the message of war to Mbaino. Mbaino feared Umoufia so much that they brought Okonkwo like a king with the virgin and and the young man. The Mbaino had given Umoufia a fifteen year old lad named Ikemefuna and the young virgin. The virgin was married off to Ogbuefi Udo to replace his murdered wife. Ikemefuna lived with Okonkwo for three years, he was very afraid at first, and tried to run away a couple times, but later he thought of Okonkwo as his father. The oracle decided that Ikemefuna had to be killed later though.

Kathryn (kathycat) | 22 comments The cause for the conflict with Mbaino is that some of the people of Mbaino had killed a girl of the Umuofia tribe. For compensation they said they would go to war with Mbaino unless Mbaino gave them a virgin girl and a young man, Ikemefuma. The girl was married off in place of the girl who had died and Ikemefuma stayed with Okonkwo for three years until they killed him.

Isaiah Armijo | 28 comments One of the women in the Umuofia was killed by one of the Mbaino. The Umuofia then demanded a virgin girl and a teenage boy. The Mbaino people peacefully accepted this demand in order to pro vent a war between the two tribes. Then the virgin girl was married to the husband who's wife had been killed, and Ikemefuma lived with Okonkwo's family for the next three years

Kristen | 24 comments The conflict with Mbaino started when a woman from Umoufia was killed in a market place by a man from Mbaino. The man's son and a virginal girl were sacrificed to Umoufia as a punishment for this crime. The girl was married to the dead woman's husband. The boy was given to Okonkwo.

Xavier Benni | 26 comments The conflict was because Mbaino killed one one the daughters of Umuofia when she was buying palm wine. This conflict was important because it showed the fear from the neighboring villages to Umuofia. Like it said in the book "the neighboring villages [Mbaino] never go to war with us." So Mbaino was forced to pay a tribute to Umoufia to prevent war, this shows the respect and fear Mbaino has for Umuofia. I also disagree with saul because Mbaino never went to war with Umuofia because they were known as the most fierce in all the land.

Juliana | 15 comments Mbaino killed a girl while she was in the market place. Because of this war was considered. Also a grate offence and loss of respect came upon the people. Are the people going to be able to recover from this? I do not know it was a big conflict.

Kai | 33 comments The village of Mbaino killed Ogbeufi Udo's wife from the Ibo tribe, and the Ibo demanded a "young man and a virgin for compensation", or they would go to war.

Tristan Sena | 26 comments Ezeugo, the wife of Ogbuefi Udo, was killed by Mbaino because of this the Umuofia village asked them to choose between war and the offering of a young man and a virgin.

Dominik Barela | 12 comments Another clan had killed Udo's wife. They said to give a virgin and a young man, or they would go to war. They were very afraid of Umofia so they gave them what they asked for. The virgin was to replace Udo's wife.
