Franz Kröger, Ben Baluri Saibu

First Notes on Koma Culture

Life in a Remote Area of Northern Ghana

Reihe: Forschungen zu Sprachen und Kulturen Afrikas, Band 13, 2010, broschiert, 568 Seiten

ISBN: 978-3-643-10543-1

Although the Koma are known throughout the world as a result of the so-called Komaland-terracottas, excavated in the 1980s, no extensive ethnographic publication about their culture has appeared yet. The present book comprises some of the results of Franz Kröger's surveys during six field research trips between 1984 and 2008. It is also based on the profound knowledge of the co-author, Ben Baluri Saibu, a lawyer from the Koma village of Yikpabongo.

The main focus of the book is the social, political and economic structure of the Koma, as well as their material culture, and, above all, their traditional religion and the extraordinarily dynamic history. A Konni-English word list with approximately 2400 entries might be interesting for linguists specialised in the West African Gur languages.
