Winiama People __ "Winiama emigrated north from northern Ghana with their Nuna neighbors at the end of the 15th century before the Nakomsé (Mossi) advance. The Mossi invaders were never able to successfully maintain power in Winiama territory, because the horses on which they depended for military power quickly became sick and died."
