Why do I have a family in Ghana?

I was adopted in 1989 as the daughter of the then eldest of a lineage in Hiineteng/Ghana: Kuuyuour Zinige. I lived with the family (four households) for several months to carry out a field research as part of my ethnology studies. Kuuyuor gave me a Dagara name, Nmingmale – which means I am the work of God. God sent me to them from Berlin to Hiineteng. And it was then God’s work in his eyes that I stayed safe and healthy during my ethnological fieldwork with the support of the extended family.
I designed my master’s thesis as a book, and my daughter Line translated it into English. My desire in 2019 was to present the family the results of my fieldwork – the genealogy of their lineage.
