They are located in the Sassandra sub prefecture of Cote d'Ivoire, most of their 24 villages are along the sea coast.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Their economy is based on agriculture. They were formally fishermen but had to abandon this occupation as a result of the presence of Ghanian fishermen.

The Neyo are mostlly animists. Each family worships a particular spirit which theu belive protects them and assures them of good fortune. Each village also worhips a particular deity. The Neyo worships a cayman as their overall deity, who they believe protects every Neyo from drowning. There are evangelical churches among the Neyo. However, the members are mostly outsiders.
