My writing touches upon the different roles of Queenmothers. By no means is it an in- depth look into her role in different regions of Ghana, but concentrates on her spiritual, traditional role & presently changing role in Ashanti. A chapter is also given to Yaa Asantewaa. The second component of my project consists of photographs that convey the symbolism of unity and show how interconnected the community is to the institution of Ashanti Chieftaincy on an everyday basis.
