Ashanti

region

Ashanti, or Asante, region of central Ghana, in West Africa, inhabited by the people of the same name. From the 17th century to 1902, when Britain militarily took over the region, the powerful Ashanti Confederacy linked several kingdoms under one chief. The symbol of their unity was the sacred Golden Stool.
