Introduction / History

The Nkonya people are located in the Upper Volta region in the district of Jasikan. The towns in the region with the most Nkonya people are Ntsumuru, Ntumada and Wurupong. Most Nkonya are located in or around these towns. The Nkonya are governed by 2 paramount chiefs, one in the north of the area and the other in the south. This has created a strong north-south divide linguistically, politically and socially between these two groups of Nkonya people. There have strongly positive attitudes towards culture and language. However language development is seen for cultural ethnic identification rather than for spiritual motivation. There is a very complex relationship between the traditional religious worldview and the understanding of Christian concepts.
