History of Golden Stool
this is a great article. Thanks Pan
Asante, I think those are the same people who claim that their name means "people of the burning city", I was trying to find an articles on them but they only offer so much information on the interent. I think what threw me to them was the fact that the singer Ashanti was named after them, I thought her name was Frenched, but it turned out to be meaningful.
Check out this thread for more information about the Asante and other African peoples:
Are the Bubi by any chance found in South Africa Pan? Thanks for the links.
Kumasi West Ghana
Just a small note: If you ever get to Ghana visit the National Cultural Center in Kumasi. The museum displays a copy of the stool. The real stool still exists in the possession of Ashanti king and his court. You'll be lucky if they let you see it. Their museum isn't too bad physically, but it is informative enough to be interesting..has a lot of Ashanti history on display.
