The eastern coast of the Côte d'Ivoire comprises the area of lagoons. The population here is divided into twelve language groups with the Attie or Akye being one of them. The Akye numbering 55,000 constitute a part of the Akan group of ethnicities. Before colonization each village was autonomous and, when threatened, they united to form a 'confederation'. Usually these people are not governed by chiefs, although a man's social position is determined by his age.
