According to the people of Ahanta, Kundum festival was instituted after one hunter by name Akpoley went to the forest for hunting and chanced upon a group of dwarfs dancing in well uniformed circular pattern.

It is believed that the hunter, Akpoley, hid and observed the dance of the dwarfs, after which he went back to the Ahanta Township and introduced the newly found dance to his people. Over time, the dance became associated with expelling evil spirit from the Towns and Villages of the Ahanta and Nzema people.

As years went by and modernity set in, the Kundum Festival underwent several changes and became a festival celebrated to thank God for the abundance of food as well as protection of the people, hence making Kundum both a religious and harvest festival.
