The Route des Chefferies informs the national and international opinion that the 241 works left Cameroon to participate


A resounding success. This is how we can describe the first Cultural Season of Cameroon which took place in Paris from

They talk about us

I launch here tonight an appeal to all the patrons to make the road of the chieftaincies a road made of benevolence and solidarity so that the African tradition lives and Cameroon lives

By Emmanuel De Tailly, former General Manager of the SABC

The exhibition organized by La Route Des Chefferies in Paris, was a very important event for the chieftaincies, in the promotion and the safeguard of our heritage. It has positioned Cameroon in terms of culture and display of our heritage.

By His Majesty TSALA NDZOMO, Vice President of the Council of Chiefs of Cameroon

This exhibition will make it possible to make known the depths of the culture and the heritage of the Cameroonian chiefdoms

By Fon Zofoa Abubaka Fuanfor, Babungo Chiefdom (North West Cameroon)

The exhibition of the Route des Chefferies at the musée du quai Branly is an opportunity for us, guardians of tradition, to bring our sons and daughters of the diaspora back to the source and encourage a reconnection with their ancestral values.

By His Majesty David SIMEU, King of the Bapa / President of ORTOC

It is a moment of sharing our roots with the world through the door of France. A moment of communion of our values and our wealth with the world. Moments of immersion in the freshness and flavor of the geniuses of the forest made possible by the Route des Chefferies

By His Majesty MVONDO Bruno, Chief of the Ndong, Sangmelima

The Paris exhibition is welcome for our chieftaincies because it has opened our cultures to the world and given a glimpse to tourists who would like to visit our regions. This exhibition has allowed us to value our ancestral traditions

By Sultan Mohamed IBRAHIM BOUKAR, King of Wandala

I am happy to be involved in this project which is a way to enhance our culture

At the Musée du Quai Branly, all the cultures of Cameroon have had the historic opportunity to speak to the world in unison thanks to the Route des Chefferies. It will present and explain the immense tangible and intangible heritage of Cameroon

By His Majesty ESSOMBEY, Chief of the Sodiko

The Sur la Route des Chefferies exhibition brought the heart and soul of the Grassfields to life in Paris. It was a bold and innovative exhibition. Never before have the traditions and chieftaincies of Cameroon been presented on such a scale in France. One of the remarkable singularities of this exhibition is to have inscribed in space an active geography of identities and memory. All this by splitting in a subtle balance the past and the present.

By Emmanuel Kasarherou, President of the musée du quai Branly

"The exhibition promotes Cameroon, particularly the Grassfields (West and North-West regions) where monumental architecture, blacksmithing, beadwork, woodcarving, have been mixed and above all preserved over the centuries with the precious assistance of traditional chiefs. I hope that this exhibition will not be the last but that it will precede other exhibitions of the same kind in relation to other cultural areas of Cameroon. At a time when there is talk of the return to their birthplace of works illicitly taken from Africa, the opening of this exhibition allows us to observe that another way is possible.

By André Magnus Ekoumou, Ambassador of Cameroon to France

It was a historic moment for the cultural journalist that I am. It is a great victory because beyond the artistic aspect, there is the symbol. It is the consideration of the local talents who deploy themselves to make the name of Cameroon shine through their works. Let's not forget that we are two years away from the Olympic Games in Paris. Positioning the brand image of Cameroon on the international level, through culture, is amazing. Today, we discover Cameroon in other ways than scandals.

By Laurentine Assiga, cultural journalist, President of RJ2C

I was always filled with a feeling of pride when I saw the pictures of the exhibition that took place in Paris. It was time that our heritage was exposed and highlighted. I am happy to know that Cameroonians in the diaspora went to discover unique objects such as royal thrones, calabashes, masks and totems and to take part in the activities of the Cultural Season which is a real bridge between the visible and the invisible, between the world of the ancestors and that of the living.

By Muriel Blanche, actress and producer

The exhibition organized by the Route des Chefferies is the most beautiful representation of Cameroonian cultural diversity ever seen. When I arrived at the museum, I understood that these sacred objects, although they are art objects, describe the expression of power, the power of an impenetrable world and finally the relationship between man and nature. This initiative is an opportunity for the discovery and knowledge of our culture throughout the world and the new generation.

By Georgette Tchiega, Queen Bana

What this exhibition inspires in me is admiration for this unprecedented cultural innovation, a new approach to promoting our culture by reaching out to others to give them a taste to invite them to visit our country and particularly the Grassfields. It is an ideal opportunity to sell our tourist destination. It helps to better promote and safeguard this little known ancestral heritage and to further root it for future generations especially for the conservation of our original cultural identity that makes us different from other peoples of the world.
