Abstract:Examination of the connections between the late seventeenth, early eighteenth century Gold Coast states of Adorn and Jabi, and Supome, or Supon-Dunkwa, and Yarbiw, two substools of a minor paramount stool in modern southern Ghana, in an attempt to trace the transition of Adorn and Jabi into the present-day subordinate stools of Supome and Yarbiw. This effort in historical reclamation demonstrates that Adorn and Jabi did not just disappear without a trace. Notes, map.
