ABLA POKOU AND THE GREAT SACRIFICE🇨🇮: Queen Abla Pokou was born at the beginning of the 18th Century and was the niece of the Osei Tutu, founder of the Ashanti confederation of Ghana. After his death his nephew (Abla Pokou's brother) inherited the throne, in accordance with the matriarchal linage of the Ashanti people. After the death of this nephew a war began between an uncle of the current ruling family and Abla Pokou's second brother Dakon. In the capital of the kingdom Kumasi, a rebellion arose which resulted in the death of Dakon. From this moment Abla Pokou realised it was no longer safe for her, so she left with the servants and all those who recognised Dakon's legitimacy and embarked on her journey North West. According to the legend, the heavy winds that day made the Comoé stream that separates Ivory Coast and Ghana impossible to cross. With their enemies quickly catching up to them a decision had to be made. The high priest told her that the sacrifice of their most prized possessions had to be given up to the river goddess. At once people began to give the gold and the Ivory they had on them but it was not enough. Abla Pokou placed her only son into the river and the storm stopped immediately. She screamed "Ba ouli" meaning "The child is dead". It is from here the group of people she led gained the name Baoulé and their place of refuge "Sakassou" which means the place of funerals. #ivorycoast #ivorianskillingit #abidjan #baoulé #ashantikotoko #akan
