Membership of 


The premier Chapter of Urhobo Historical Society (UHS) was inaugurated in New York City on August 28, 1999. We now proudly announce that membership is open to all interested Urhobos as well as non-Urhobos who ascribe to UHS's goal of creating a movement that will open up the writing of Urhobo history to scholars and ordinary people alike. We seek to document that history primarily in the internet and subsequently in print.

Membership Fees

The Inaugural Meeting of Urhobo Historical Society authorized two sets of annual membership fees. (1) A General Membership fee of US$50.00 (UK£30.00) shall apply to every General Member. (2) In order to assist with the start-up expenses of building the resources of Urhobo Historical Society, the Inaugural Meeting authorized a Charter Membership fee of $200 or above ((UK£150.00 or more) for each charter member.
