dbo:abstract
  • Die Ga, kulturell eng mit den Dangme verbunden und deshalb auch Ga-Adangme genannt, sind eine Ethnie, die in den westafrikanischen Staaten Ghana, Togo und Benin lebt. Die in Accra lebenden Ga bezeichnen sich als Ga Mashi, und in der Sprache der Ga nennen sich die Ga auch Ga mei, Ga Menschen. In Ghana, in der Region Greater Accra, leben etwa 625.000 Ga, in Togo etwa 32.000 und in Benin 8.600. In Ghana leben die meisten Ga in der Region Greater Accra, in und in der Nähe von Ghanas Hauptstadt Accra. Accra entwickelte sich aus den drei Küstenorten Kinka (Holländisch-Accra), James Town (Britisch-Accra) und Osu (Dänisch-Accra), die den Europäern ab dem 15. Jahrhundert als Handelsniederlassungen dienten. Außerhalb Ghanas sind die Ga insbesondere in westlichen Kunstkreisen wegen der von ihnen verwendeten figürlichen Särge und wegen ihrer handgemalten Filmplakate bekannt. Sowohl ihre figürlichen Särge als auch die handgemalten Filmplakate werden regelmäßig in westlichen Kunstausstellungen gezeigt. (de)
  • The Ga-Adangme, Gã-Adaŋbɛ, Ga-Dangme, or GaDangme are an ethnic group in Ghana and Togo. The Ga and Adangbe people are grouped respectively as part of the Ga–Dangme ethnolinguistic group. The Ga-Adangmes are one ethnic group that lives primarily in the Greater Accra, Eastern Region and the Volta Region of Ghana. Others areas are Aného in Togo and Benin. The Ga peoples were organized into six independent towns (Accra (Ga Mashie), Osu, La, Teshie, Nungua, and Tema). Each town had a stool, which served as the central object of Ga ritual and war magic. Accra became the most prominent Ga-Dangme towns and is now the heartbeat and capital of Ghana.The Ga people were originally farmers, but today fishing and trading in imported goods are the principal occupations. Trading is generally in the hands of women, and a husband has no control over his wife’s money. Succession to most offices held by women and inheritance of women’s property are by matrilineal descent. Inheritance of other property and succession to male-held public offices are by patrilineal descent. Men of the lineage live together in a men’s compound, while women, even after marriage, live with their mothers and children in a women’s compound. Each Ga town has a number of different cults and many gods, and there are a number of annual town festivals. The Adangme people occupy the coastal area of Ghana from Kpone to Ada, on the Volta River and South Atlantic Ocean along the Gulf of Guinea and inland along the Volta River. The Adangme People include the Ada, Kpong, Krobo, Ningo, Osuduku, Prampram, and Shai, all speaking Adangbe of the Kwa branch of the Niger-Congo family of languages.The Adangme People have the largest Population among the two related Ga-Adangme People. About 70% of the Greater Accra Regional Land is owned by the Adangmes located in Dangme East and Dangme West Districts of Ghana. Also, in the Eastern Region and Volta Region of Ghana, about 15% of lands belong to the Adangme People. These are mainly in the Manya Krobo and Yilo Krobo Districts of the Eastern Region.In the Agotime Area of Volta Region and the Adangbe Area in the Southern part of Togo. Adangme occupations are fishing, trading and farming which is based on the huza system. In this system a tract of land is acquired by a group of people, usually members of an extended family; the land is subdivided among them according to the amount each has paid, and each individual thereafter has complete control of his own section. Negotiations with the seller are carried out by an elected huzatse (“father of the huza”), who later acts as the huza leader and representative. Millet was formerly the staple food, but more common crops now include cassava, yams, corn (maize), plantain, cocoa, and palm oil. Lineage members generally return to the traditional lineage home from the huza farms several times a year to participate in the festivals of their lineage gods. There are also many annual festivals. The Ga-Adangme are organized into clans based on patrilineal descent; the clans are subdivided into localized patrilineages, the basic units of the Ga-Dangme historical, political, cutural Tribal group.

  • Il popolo Ga vive nell'area sudorientale del Ghana, nella zona della capitale Accra, e nel confinante Togo e assomma a circa 600.000 persone, costituendo circa il 3% della popolazione totale della nazione del Ghana, che vede vivere in uno stesso stato circa 100 gruppi linguistici. Anche la loro lingua si chiama Ga e appartiene al gruppo linguistico Kwa. Il popolo Ga fondò la città di Accra nel XVI secolo come porto commerciale e prese il nome dall'antico regno ga di Nkran, fondato nel 1510 e governato da sovrani detti Ga Mantse. In Europa i Ga sono famosi per i loro riti funebri e in particolare per la forma della bara, che viene costruita in modo da riflettere la personalità del defunto o una sua caratteristica di quando era in vita. Ad esempio se muore un tassista è probabile che la famiglia faccia costruire una bara a forma di automobile. Ci sono diversi laboratori come per esempio quello di Eric Adjetey Anang (1985) che dirige il laboratorio che porta il nome del suo nonno Kane Kwei, il laboratorio di Paa Joe (1947) a Pobiman, il laboratorio di Daniel Mensah (Hello) (1968) a Teshie o il laboratorio di Kudjoe Affutu a Awutu, Central Region.
