Every ethnic group, tribe, town, and city in Ghana has its boundaries and jurisdictions that are properly marked and made known to the people who live in them.  For the records, there are 36 States in the Anloland or the Anlo Kingdom. The Anloland, located in the coastal lines of the Volta Region which are made up generally of the Ewes in one of such groups. This article presents to you the 36 states of Anloland.

After their migration from the proverbial wicked King of Notsie, ‘King Agorkorli’ in modern-day Togo, the Ewes settled along their journey, and their settlement even though scattered, are bound together by the bond they shared back when they were still in captivity. With this, they have a common festival that holds them more than they can ever wish for.

As is always the case with migration, you may settle where you find what you are looking for and that is exactly what the people of ancient Anloland did. As they move along the lonely scary journey to a land they have no knowledge of, they begin to settle with their families along the way far from their ruler.

These settlements are what has resulted in the great land and people you see today from the Anloland spread all over Ghana and the world.
