Abstract
This paper examines the impact of acculturation on the settlers of Sabon Gari quarters of Fagge local government of Kano state, who migrated to the area as early as 1911 after construction of the railways under the colonial government. The paper revisits the historical background of the area by analyzing the work of Bako, (2006), which accounts for the detailed history of the area since its creation in the 20th century. It further employs interviews as methodology in studying the nature of acculturation presence in the location. Unidirectional theory of acculturation is chosen to guide the research. The research findings reveal that the dominant culture has assimilated into the immigrants’ culture, the result which is against the research hypothesis. The paper hypothesize that all immigrants’ cultures would be assimilated into the Hausa culture being Kano one of the greatest ancient Hausa cities. The paper finally suggests that more researches should be conducted to ascertain the impact of acculturation in Sabon Gari and Kano Metropolis as a whole.
