Traditional Set Up

There are five paramount chiefs: Wulensi, Jauli, Nakpayili, Kukuo, and Chichagi. As positive cultural practices, we have traditional festivals, such as Fire Festival and Damba Festival. These festivals bring all major ethnic groups together and therefore contributing to strengthen peaceful atmosphere in the district.

Ethnic Diversity

Although the district has a variety of ethnic groups, the dominant ones are the Nanumbas, Konkombas and Basares. There is Bator settlers from the Volta Region found along the Oti River who engage in mainly fishing. Among the dominant ethnic groups, namely Nanumba and Konkomba, the former is fairly larger in number compared with the latter.
