OUR HEROES SHOULD BE CELEBRATED AND OUR FOLKLORE PUBLISHED FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS
The experience was easy and laid back. The people seem very content with the little resources they have available. I believe they deserve more. As we all know the heat can be unbearable because when we visited in 2008, during the day we sort shade under the trees and at night we slept on top of the mud huts. It was the most thrilling experience, laying on your back just looking into the sky till y
THE PEOPLE OF NORTHERN GHANA HAVE A PECULIAR HUMBLE NATURE, RESPECTFUL AND TOGETHERNESS

I have come to the realization that dancing is part of my culture, whether I dance or not. If I don’t dance and nobody dances, my cultural dance will one day fade away.

Northern Ghana is a home to many businesses and opportunities, apart from the major cities, most of our people are into farming and rearing of life stock. Unfortunately, because of the uncertain rain pattern, farming has disappointed a lot of people. And so, you find a lot of young ones now trying to diversify into other sectors, but the challenge has been getting of the required skills, guidance
NORTHERN GHANA IS TRULY HOME TO ME NOW - MR. WILLIAM HAUN
The culture of the northern tribes is so rich and the history of the Mole-Dagbon states is so deep – I fell in love with the region. I’ve found that the people of the north are very happy when they see my genuine interest in their cultures and stories. That opens many doors for documenting things with media.
