Bamum

Information about the Bamum

The West Province (French Province de l'Ouest) is 14,000 sq km of territory located in the central-western portion of the Republic of Cameroon. It borders the Northwest Province to the northwest, the Adamawa Province to the northeast, the Centre Province to the southeast, the Littoral Province to the southwest, and the Southwest Province to the west. The West Province is the smallest of Cameroon's ten provinces in area, yet it has the highest population density.

As home to the enterprising Bamileke (Bamiléké) tribes, the West is an economic bright spot and one of Cameroon's more developed regions. This progressive development is tempered by the strong traditional culture that persists among the Bamileke and the province's other major ethnic group, the Bamun (Bamum, Bamoun).
