Introduction / History

The Ngangam are a sudanic people in Northern Togo, who live south of the mountain zone of the Dapango region. Their center of economic and religious life is in Gando. They speak Ngangam. They are considered a part to the Bimoba people.

The Ngangam herd cattle and camel and are also subsistence agriculturalist. They grow millet, guinea corn, groundnuts, beans, pepper and potatoes. During the dry season they hunt for food.

They live in a compound, which housees the man and his wives and children and sometimes the man's sons and their children.

The Ngangam are a people proud of their heritage. They have resisted many forces of change to their cultural heritage as long as they could, but much of their traditional land has become game reserve.

Some Christian movements have begun among the Ngangam but the existing churches are very weak and in need of much growth before they become an indigenously structured body in Christ.
