Occupants of the Dagbon kingdom since 1400s

The traditional kingdom of Dagbon with Tahozie- the Red Hunter as it's root, is the kingdom of the Dagombas. It is found in the northern region of Ghana. These people speak dagbani language and Islam is the main religion.

Occupants of the Dagbon skin bear the title "Yaa Naa" which means king of strength. This title was coined by Naa Shitobu (one of the three sons of Tohazie) and has since then become the title of Dagbon chiefs.
