Alhaji Bakar Kamara

Abstract


The researcher narrates in this paper knowledge and experience attained about China and Chinese people, and the influence of Chinese culture and traditions in Sierra Leone. In a clearer picture, the paper starts with a preview on the background of the knowledge of Chinese people in the rural setting of Sierra Leone. The researcher went on exhibiting Chinese films and actors/actresses as key element of the community. In a more connecting format, the researcher highlighted some sources and background of styles of martial arts applicable in Chinese films. Besides, the researcher views the practical demonstration of Chinese culture and tradition as public display of affection, eye contact and handshaking, colour and their symbols, and Chinese festivals.
