Our team worked with the Nso’ Arts and Cultural Heritage Association and created a virtual museum in order to increase awareness of the unique culture of the Nso’ people in Cameroon, Africa. A lot of information from this region is in danger of being lost due to political tension and poor artifact conservation, and many people, including the Cameroonian youth, are not prioritizing the preservation of their culture and history. Creating a website where individuals can view the art, history, and culture found in Cameroon is the best way to increase the availability of knowledge of the Nso’ people. Such a system will not only allow individuals to become more familiar with Cameroon, but it will also allow researchers to update the site and add new information as they go deeper into their research. Since anyone with a web-enabled device will be able to access the virtual museum, it has the potential to get people from around the world, including the youth in Cameroon, interested in learning more about the art, history, and traditions native to that region.
