Good day steemians. I am so delighted to share with you one of the rich cultures in Ghana here. I hope you’ll like it.

The Dagombas

The Dagombas are a group of people who live in Dagomba

The Dagombas are Ghana's second most populous ethnic group, and the largest in the Northern Region.
The Dagombas now number around a million people and speak the Dagbani language

The Dagomba culture is heavily influenced by Islam brought to the region by traders between the 12th and the 15th centuries. Dagomba has a sophisticated oral tradition woven around drums and other musical instruments. Most of their history, until recently, has been passed down via oral tradition with drummers as professional griots.

The King of Dagbon, the Ya – Na, literally translated as “King of Absolute Power”, has his seat in Yendi. Yendi is situated 136 km to the east of Tamale cloze to the border of Togo. Skins are material symbols of traditional political office in the northern and upper regions just ad stools are in central and southern Ghana

Years and events of importance in the Dagomba history

During the 15th and the 16th centuries the Dagomba came from the north, moving from Nigeria, Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso before settling in Ghana. Oral histories of the kingdom tell that it was founded by a warrior named Tuhazie, who arrived with his cavalry men. From the beginning the Dagombas dominated the existing tribes in the area. Trade, particulary in gold as well as expanding populations and empires elsewhere were major reasons for this influx of people.
In about 1700, the capital was relocated from Yendi Dabari near Tamale to a new city, also known as Yendi, in the east because of incessant wars with the Gonja people.

1713. Naa Zangina defeated the Gonja people and killed their leader at Sari near Yendi. Naa Zangina is reputed to be the first Muslim ruler of Dagbon.

Good attempt! Please I want to be sure if this is diary game, since the content isn't specifically describing your diary game activities, but it was rather narrating the history of Dagonbas, hence more culture specific. Then I will suggest you change the title of your post and reframe it.

I am not sure you were also trying to enter the contest organized by @delakloe. Then you have to do something about it.

I could see you are also doing well reaching achievement task 4. Please you can proceed to complete all the Achievement for more attention.

My pleasure 😃, CR - Ghana!
