    Default Ewe People

    The Ewe (Eʋeawó "Ewe people", Eʋedukɔ́ "Ewe nation"[1]) are a people located in the southeast corner of Ghana, east of the Volta River, in an area now described as the Volta Region, in southern Togo and southwest Benin.

    We're a relatively small tribe that numbers around 6 million.

    - 2-3 million in Ghana
    - 3 million in Togo
    - 500k in Benin (I don't know too much about Ewes in Benin)

    Everyone from Ghana has migrated from elsewhere

    The original "Ghanaians" are the Guans

    The Guans have mixed in with the various Akan tribes.

    I don't know if there are any pure ones left.

    I'd estimate our population in Ghana is maybe 10 - 13%

    There are also Ewe enclaves in Accra and Kumasi (2 largest cities)

    As far as the Nigerian connection, I have read some books that place us in Oyo hundreds of years ago (but that is not conclusive as of yet) we definitely migrated to our current location from the East

    The Ewe are a good looking bunch of people. I heard quite a few Ewe were taken as slaves from the Gold Coast.

    I saw this people, and many others in the pictures, my straight thoughts, were...Nigerian....
    Me too! When I look at the Ewe, I see a mix of Ghanaian, Togolese, Beninese and some Nigerian looking people.

    This thread needs some new pics

    Maps showing location of Ewe speakers and related Gbe languages, it doesn't seem like they occupy a great part of Ghana's territory nor in Togo or Benin. But perhaps they are among the most populated parts of the country?
