Brief Profile

The Asante Twi, also known as the Akan, diaspora people originated from Ghana. The Akan people are a historically important ethnic group of West Africa. With over 20 million members the Akans are one of the biggest ethnic groups in West Africa. They are the largest ethnic group in both Ghana and the Ivory Coast.

Their culture follows traditional matrilineal lines. Their art is wide-ranging and renowned, especially for the tradition of crafting bronze goldweights, using the lost-wax casting method. Some of their most important mythological stories are called anansesem, literally meaning "the spider story", but in a figurative sense also meaning "traveler's tales". The stories generally, but not always, revolve around Kwaku Ananse, a trickster spirit, often depicted as a spider or human.

The primary religion practiced by the Akan is ethnic religion. Ethnic religion is deeply rooted in a people's ethnic identity and conversion essentially equates to cultural assimilation.

Prayer Points

  • For Christians to reveal through their own personal lifestyle and to share with Akans how to have a living and personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • For boldness among evangelical Akans to share their faith in Christ with their own people and to cross-cultures and understand their role in making disciples among all people groups.
