The Legendary Nana Yaa Asantewaa & the War of the Golden Stool
Yaanom, Mekyea Mo Nyinaa, Mema Mo Akwaaba. Apparently, it seems like I have found some sort of a lost love for my own culture, my mind keeps boggling with curiosity these days about my Ghanaian roots, its heritage and thus its history from which it originates. In all fairness though, for the Ghanaians who live in the diaspora, especially from my generation and younger, it is hard to come across valuable and rich pieces of our own history, which in my opinion ought to be taught everywhere. I am pretty sure that there are many people out there who have heard about our historic, iconic ancestors, but unfortunately, the knowledge of it still remains on the surface for some of us (myself included before I started this study journey). Not to worry though... this lady got your back on this one, so let's get cracking.
Enjoy the video.
