See the spirits come alive!
The first Saturday of every November sees the main festival, Hogbetsotso, spring into life. It symbolizes the great exodus of Ewes from their ancestral home, Notsie, to their present abode around the 15th Century. The Hogbetsotso Festival, which is celebrated at Anloga, the traditional home of the Anlos, attains a grand final with a durbar of Chiefs and people a midst pomp and pageantry.
During such festivals, religious cults are displayed through some magical performances. Such cults include the Korku and Yewe cults. One interesting feature is to see the members of Korku cult cut themselves without effect with sharp knives. Book into one of Keta’s fantastic hotels in advance because the during this period hotel rooms fill up fast.
