Orring Historical Society is established as the voice for history, culture and language of Orring People of Nigeria. We bring together people who share an interest in and love for our history, culture and language. We inspire, enable and encourage people to get involved with history. We believe that history underpins our cultures and informs our identities. We are committed to support the study, learning and research into Orring history and culture. We promote the preservation and development of Korring language.
We envision a world where historical, cultural and linguistic differences enrich society rather than barrier to personal or group access to socio-economic or political opportunities
Our mission is to advance knowledge in the history, culture and language of Orring people and to provide solutions to some of the complex issues that underpin Korring language endangerment, while helping individuals and communities to feel confident in their self-identity.
Orring Historical Society is an international charity that aims to galvanise interest in local history and culture and the development of Korring Language as one of the recognised Minority Indigenous Languages through leading the way in partnership working to research and document the history of Orring people and their culture, and the revitalisation of and documentation of Korring language.
Languages and cultures are important individual and societal resources
Languages and cultures are important aspects of individuals’ and group’s identity
All languages, dialects, and cultures deserve to be respected and cultivated
Historical, linguistic and cultural differences should enrich society and not a barrier to personal or group success or wellbeing
