Brief History Narrated by an Elder

It is Believed That Dagaabas and Frafras have the same Ancestors, they were brothers, they Lived together and there was famine, after they had exhausted their food, they went looking for food and even hunting, they weren’t lucky but they had a pet dog so when the hunger became unbearable they decided that they would kill the pet do so that they can satisfy they hunger, they killed the dog but by then ,how to process the dog brought disagreement, one wanted it roasted and the other wanted it boiled, the one that wanted it boiled if they boil it they will get some light soup to drink, the other one said he was so hungry that he can’t be patient to wait for the boiling process, they decided to share the meat and did it equally, in the process the Head got missing, one of them hid the head, that brought disagreement and with the disagreement they went their separate ways that is how come you find the Frafras in the East and the Frafras in the West. After sometime we realised we were the same, it because intriguing, that’s why when a dagao meets a Frafras he asks of the dog’s head.
