The Ashantis have the largest population in Ghana 🇬🇭 with a population estimated at 12 million people, and they can be found in Ghana, Togo 🇹🇬 and Ivory Coast 🇨🇮 

The Ashanti people, who are a subgroup of the Akan, speak the Twi language, a language that is one of the most widely spoken in West Africa. Their capital was Kumasi, one of the largest cities in Ghana. Kumasi was the capital of the Ashanti precolonial federation, also sometimes referred to as a kingdom.

Most modern Ashanti people are Christians. Some are traditional worshippers, while a growing population of Muslims can also be found.

According to the history of these great people, the Ashanti kingdom was found in the 1600s, in the midst of a land that was full of gold and that served as a major trade item between them and the Europeans.

Many descendants Ashantis exist in Caribbean countries, especially in Jamaica, where there is a clear Ashanti influence in the Jamaican name, dress, and physical appearance.
