Woyo People __ "Sometime prior to the 15th century, Queen Nwe led her people, who were to become the Woyo, away from the Congo (Zaire) cataracts to the general vicinity of their current location. This first dynasty was destroyed when the neighboring KiKongo king permitted his troops to invade and plunder Woyo communities."
