Osabarima Dotobibi Takyia Ameyaw II, the Chief of the Ghanaian city of Techiman, turned his face to the wall in September, 2003 after a long and distinguished career as chief and as a colonel in the armed forces of Ghana. His funeral was celebrated in February, 2004 in Techiman, and because he had died while still chief, it was attended by most of the important chiefs of Ghana as well as by the Chief of State and the former president. This video covers all six days of the funeral, and includes spectacular footage of the royal arts of Ghana, including funeral cloth, gold ornaments, umbrellas of state, drums, dancing, and both military and Christian rites.
