With a display of indigenous culture and arts, the Chiefs and people of the Peki Traditional Area in the South Dayi District of the Volta Region celebrated the annual Asafotudada.

The festival was to commemorate the sacrifices of the forebearers who fought in wars to secure the present settlement and celebrate the bravery of the Pekis.

Warlords in the divisions of the Peki Traditional Area led their warriors on route marches in the streets to perform special rights to signify the beginning of the Asafotudada.

The young and old participated to pay homage to their forefathers and ancestors who represented Peki in wars during the pre-colonial and colonial days. This was done amidst drumming and singing, and a display of acts during wars.

The Pekis were known for their warfare and bravery in defending their settlements. History has it that both men and women joined forces to defend their territory.
