The Attié are a lagoon population, located in the east of Côte d'Ivoire, and belongs to the large Akan group. The latter also includes the Ebrié and Abouré. The artistic achievements of these different ethnic groups thus possess a similar aesthetic. The Attié, of Akye-Fo, "the holders of the blade", are divided according to the north and the south. This ethnic group lives mainly from palm oil production and the harvest of yam, banana and maize. Artifacts made by the Attié ethnic group were used in ceremonies and festivities. They were then sometimes gold or covered in gold.
