Baga Nimba Axe from Guinea-Bissau - This axe with a Nimba head belongs to the Baga tribe in Guinea-Bissau.
About the Tribe
The Baga people live in the swampy coastal region between Cape Verga and Guinea's capital, Conakry, in western Guinea, along the Guinea-Bissau coasts. They speak a language belonging to the Niger-Congo Atlantic branch family. To avoid conflict with the Fulbe Muslims, they moved from Guinea's interior highlands to the Guinean coast's geographically isolated lowlands.
