Kundum Festival: The meaning of Kundum



The Kundum festival is celebrated by the Ahanta and Nzema people in the Western part of Ghana, precisely the Western region.

The festival originally began in the late part of the 1700 but has undergone a lot of changes over the last couple of centuries.


However, the core idea behind the festival which describes it as Harvest Festival still remains unchanged with the name of the festival, Kundum, meaning ‘Famine Could Not overpower Us’.

Why Kundum? The people chose the name after surviving a famine period in the early 1800s.
