African Traditional Religion (ATR) is the indigenous religion practiced by Africans before the advent of Islam and Christianity. As these foreign religions were introduced to Nigeria, the early missionaries in their quest to eradicate African Traditional Religion and to impose the foreign religion on the indigenous people devised many ways to put ATR to extinct. These includes expedition, derogatory names as well as describing it as something evil which ought to not to be practiced by Africans. Thus, it seems that ATR has gone to extinct and is no more influential in our society. This book shows how ATR will survive despite the presence of foreign religions (Islam and Christianity) in Nigeria. In an attempt to examine the influences of foreign religions on the indigenous religion in Nigeria, it was discovered that foreign religions with their various cultures to Nigeria have both positive and negative influences on ATR. With these influences on ATR it seems that ATR will go to extinction but it will not because in matters of deeper things of life such as birth, festival, marriage, customs and death, Nigerians have remained largely followers of indigenous religion. Therefore, ATR will continue to thrive and influence Nigerians despite the presence of Islam and Christianity.
