This chapter resituates the debate on what defines the Somali
society away from security, postcolonial predicaments and current
challenges, into decolonial and indigenous strongpoints and prospects
residing with the versatile Somali culture, with the creative
articulations of life, such as found in the direct and indirect design
of places where we live. It is possible to argue that culture is what
has kept the Somali people together since the Ogaden War of
1977. It is locally the backbone of an increasingly well working
decolonial and democratic society in the Somali Peninsula, and
worldwide it brings the Somali diaspora together across borders
and relate back to the origins in the Peninsula. Culture is perhaps
the singular most important and emphatic bond of Somalis.
