Abstract:Emphasizes the fact that Ghana's resident 'aliens' are less alien than one is usually apt to think. In this context the author analyses the historical background of Eve-speaking populations in four Ghanaian villages, whose homeland must have been in Adangbe (Togo). Adangbe (nowadays with an Eve-speaking community) as well as the area of the four Ghanaian villages have formed a part of one culture area, namely that of the Adangbe-speaking area. Looked at in this way one can say that these Ghanaian offshoots from an area in Togo are not so much communities of immigrants into Ghana, as communities of re-immigrants. Notes.
