FareFare

Categories: Ethnicities

Originally a colonialist term to describe a subset of Gur-speaking peoples in northern Ghana because of their greeting “Ya Fara-Fara?” meaning “How is your suffering (work)?”, they have since embraced the new appellation. They traditionally practice slash-and-burn agriculture and grow sesame and tobacco as cash crops.
