Kulibidaana is a Mamprusi chief in the northern Ghana town of Nalerigu. Chiefs in the north sit on skins which come from the animals they sacrifice to their ancestors when they become chiefs. The skins are believed to be symbols and, in a sense, conduits of the power and authority the chiefs have from their ancestors.
