THEY ARE DAHOMEANs!
In tribute to the valiant ''Amazons, the Agodjié'' of Dahomey (now Benin), a statue erected!
The Dahomey Amazons (Fon: "Agojie", "Agoji", "Mino", or "Minon") were a Fon all-female military regiment of the Kingdom of Dahomey which existed from the 1600s until 1904.
Bow down to the most exceptional female #warrior who ever lived (TassinHangbè).
💪🏾 Ultra-powerful, the Amazons of Dahomey formed an exclusively female army, which their statue "L'AMAZONE" has finally unveiled in Cotonou, Benin 🇧🇯.
