The Akan House of Mystery: The History and Accomplishments of the Akan People (Paperback)
The Akan House of Mystery is a book that explains the nature of the Akan people of Ghana and the Ivory Coast. The Akan are a very determined people who will not be suppressed and will do what they must to achieve their goals. Their reasons for matrilineal inheritance are noted, along with the ramifications. This in-depth book shows why there is the need for continuity of rebirth with women as the wheel of the revolving cycle, as well as the power accorded them, and the need to help them gain the respect due women not only in Akan lands but in all of Africa. It tells how the warrior queen Abena Pokua, the first Asante queen under the Asante confederacy during the reign of Nana Osei Tutu 1 (1680-1717), rebelled and led her people to the present day Ivory Coast after the death of Nana in war. History shows how the Baoule kingdom of Ivory Coast came about, and how Abena Pokua occupied a golden stool from the Comoe river in Ivory Coast, with the Asantehene occupying the golden stool commanded from the sky in Ghana. The book's mysteries delve into the concepts of death, ghosts, God, Satan, witchcraft, and wizards. George B. Streetor was born in Koforidua, Ghana, where the main story takes place. He now lives in Accra, Ghana, and is a therapist who heals without chemicals by using homa therapy. Publisher's website: http: //sbprabooks.com/GeorgeBStreetor.
