Ashanti Mythology is the lore of the Ashanti people of Ghana.
The most important god in the pantheon of the Ashanti is Nyame (also Nyankopon), the omniscient, omnipotent sky god. His wife is Asase Ya and they have two children, Bia and Anansi. Asase Ya is an earth goddess of ferility.
Anansi is one of the most important and famous gods of Ashanti lore. He is a trickster and a culture hero, who acts on behalf of Nyame and brings rain to stop fires and performing other duties for him. Eventually, Anansi was replaced by a chameleon.
