The Lama People

The Lama people live in northern Togo near the town of Kande. Many have migrated to other parts of Togo, Ghana, and some to Benin. They number about 200,000. They are for the most part farmers. Their principle staple is a stiff mush made from ground millet, eaten with a spicy sauce containing meat or dried fish, and often tomatoes and spinach. They are traditionally animists.
