King Peggy

“[when elders say]: "'Listen you're a woman, so you listen to us.' Then I also say, 'I'm in the States, I'm a woman and, in the rituals with the ancestors, you chose me in the name of God, so shut up and sit down.' And they will sit."

         King Peggy Peggielene Bartels
           A US citizen who is a secretary in Ghana's US Embassy (DC) and king of 7000 in Ghana’s fishing village of Otuam
