Ghana is rich in culture and has various ethnic groups such as; the Akans, Ga, Adangbe, Guang, Dagombas, Mamprusi, Gurunsi, Gonjas and Ewe.

English is the official language, but the indigenous Twi of the Ashantis, the Fante language, Frafra, Ga, Dagbani, Mampruli, Gonja and Ewe also have official status and are taught at school as an indigenous (local) language in the respective areas where they predominate.

The Ewe people, who are the focus of our discussion in this article, are an ethnic group that occupies the south-eastern part of Ghana, as well as parts of neighboring Togo and Benin; Togo (formerly French Togoland) and the Volta region, Ghana (formerly British Togoland; both formerly Togoland, whose southern part was Eweland or Eʋedukɔ́), and southern Benin.

They speak the Ewe language (Ewe: Eʋegbe) and are related to other speakers of Gbe languages, such as the Fon, Gen, Phla Phera and Aja of Togo and Benin. The Origin of the Ewe is similar to those who speak the Gbe languages. These speakers occupied the region between Akanland and Yorubaland.

The Ewe are essentially a patrilineal people. They believe that the throne should be reserved for a fiefdom or an heir depending on the succession; therefore, the founder of a community becomes the leader and is usually replaced by his paternal parents. Sheep In modern times, chiefs are generally elected by consensus and receive advice from elders.



There are a number of guidelines regarding the behavior of leaders. They are meant to keep their heads covered in public and should not be seen drinking. People see the leader as the communicator between the everyday world and the world of the ancestors.

The leader must always keep a clear mind. Traditionally, leaders should not see the face of a corpse either. They can participate in the funeral, however, once the corpse is buried or inside the casket, they must not have any contact with the corpse.

Extended families are the most important units in Ewe social life. Ewe never supported a hierarchical concentration of power within a large state.

The Ewe religion is organized around a creator or deity, Mawu, and over 600 other deities. The Ewe is more traditionally inclined in terms of religion and belief. Many village festivals and ceremonies take place in honor of one or more deities. The “coastal sheep” depend on their fishing trade for their primary livelihood, while the “interior sheep” compromise farmers and raise livestock. Ghanaian fishery2 Local variations in economic activities have led to craft specialization; they weave kente fabric, often in geometric patterns and symbolic patterns passed down through the ages.

Kente fabric manufacturing They are mainly fishermen and farmers. However, the region's erratic rainfall pattern has made fishing a highly seasonal and precarious occupation.



The situation has forced many people, especially young people, to venture into other viable economic and commercial activities like trading, weaving among others in order to survive. Flocks of kente sheep, Ghana Fishing in Ghana2 The Ewe are geographically distributed between the western part of Benin (formerly Dahomey) and Togo (south). The Volta region was colonized by the British and was originally called British Togoland.

After the German defeat in World War I, the Ewe homeland, British Togo and French Togo were renamed “Volta Region” and “Togo”. French Togo was renamed the Republic of Togo and gained independence from France on April 27, 1960. Most sheep can trace their male ancestors back to their villages of origin and make their territorial divisions along the lines of the Republic of Togo and the Volta region. The sheep have been “on the move” for a long time, migrating from Tando, in present-day western Nigeria, to Notsie (ŋɔtsie) in Togo. They are located mainly in the Republic of Togo, in the Volta region of Ghana, parts of Benin and Yorubaland in Nigeria.
