The cultural practices and characteristics of the Wasa Amenfi West district are not different from other Akan settlements. Traditions have it that the people of the district are a mixture of migrants from Akwamu, Ashanti, Assin and the I vory Coast. There is a sizeable proportion of settler farmers like Ewes, Akwapims, Krobos, Gomoans, Northerners and Brongs.
These settler tribes are often found in cocoa plantations and food crop farming on minor basis. The yam festival is celebrated to herald the harvest of the water yam. Like other Akan settlements, inheritance is through the materineal lineage whilst funerals, chieftaincy and marriage rites are purely of Akan origins. Every third Friday of the month is observed as taboo day and no one is supposed to go to farm. This is referred to as Adum. Like other Akan groups there are five (5) notable clans namely: Agona, Abrade, Asona, Bretuo and Ahene
