2.) Obrieka and Nwoye have very different feelings about the European incursion into their native village. Obrieka felt that the presence of the European missionaries was destroying their native culture and drawing people in the village apart from one another. Nwoye on the other hand embraces the Europeans and eventually converted to Christianity. Nwoye saw Christianity as a second chance and an escape out of the oppression of his father Okonkwo. He was also drawn to the new religion because of his lack belief in the old village rules, which started to happen after the killing of Ikemefuna. After converting to Christianity Nwoye shows that he is no longer part of the village by stating, “I am one of them,” when questioned what he was doing with the missionaries.
