The Yoruba-Speaking Peoples of the Slave Coast of West Africa : Their Religion, Manners, Customs, Laws, Language, Etc.; With an Appendix Containing a Comparison of the Tshi, Ga, Ewe, and Yoruba Languages (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Yoruba-Speaking Peoples of the Slave Coast of West Africa: Their Religion, Manners, Customs, Laws, Language, Etc.; With an Appendix Containing a Comparison of the Tshi, Ga, Ewe, and Yoruba Languages The portion of the West African coast occupied by the Yoruba-speaking peoples is situated in the eastern half of the Slave Coast, and lies between Badagry, on the west, and the Benin River, on the east. The extent of sea-board held by them is thus smaller than that occupied either by the Tshi or by the Ewe tribes; but the Yorubas are really an inland people, and it was not until the beginning of the present century that they moved to the south and colonised Lagos and the adjacent littoral.
