Akan Religion

Participants will become informed about the traditional (pre Christian) religion of the Akan people of the rain forests of West Africa. While they recognized a supreme God, rituals were centered around ancestors for political and dispute settling issues, and around tutelary spirits for health, fertility and well being.
