Well, the name says it all. Ever since an Oromo elder who had not had formal education related a story of skirmish between the Adal Sultanate and Abysinia(East Africa: c. 1415 - 1577) with pertinent Oromo proverbs I have been deeply interested in studying them. It made me realize that there was no better way to delve into the unknown territory of Oromian history than through proverbs and oral stories. In another instance, I read of an European traveler who made a disparaging remark that Oromos must have borrowed their proverbs from other better civilization as it seemed too sophisticated to be a homegrown art. Interestingly, the unfortunate comment further solidified my custom of collecting Oromo proverbs. I have collected proverbs from every corner of Oromia and presented them here. I continue to have a large volume in possession which will come with updates. Much love and thanks to all individuals who assisted me in collecting them. I thank all the elders who participated. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ There are more than 1000 proverbs contained in this app. For the best enjoyment, do what my friends and I have been doing: 1: Trace a mental picture of a situation 2: Slide your fingers across the app to reveal a new proverb. 3: See if it relates to the situation you thought of. 4. Memorize. I promise you will soon be as good as our elders in rendering an appropriate proverb for any situation.
