For their proud display of wealth and culture and their dominance in West African history, the Ashanti tribe to date remains one of the most prominent and popular clans of the Akan ethnic group in West Africa. Today, they are mostly found in all parts of Ghana and neighboring Cote d’Ivoire but originally emerged from modern Ghana.
Led by Princess Pokou who later became queen, some members of the Ashanti tribe moved and settled in Cote d’Ivoire, where they are now known as the Baoule people and identify themselves as Akan rather than a subgroup of the Ashanti. The Baoule tribe is one of the biggest in Cote d’Ivoire.
