Princess Ngono Anne - The Barefoot fighter

Princess Ngono Anne – The Barefoot fighter


This historical fiction is based on the tragic real life of Anne Ngono.
Barely sixty years after the death of this strong-willed princess, history
has forgotten her. She was the daughter of the German Major, Hans
Dominik, and Manga Ewengué Marie, the nkukumé [queen] of the
Sanaga people in Central Cameroon. As a Commander of the Yaoundé
Station, and an architect of colonial ‘pacification’, Dominik’s name
remains forever associated with violence and cruelty in that country
where he raged from the end of the 19th century to the beginning of
the 20th century.
“The book Ngono Anne… a unique story of a very determined woman.
I have been curious as to the lead up to independence from colonial rule
in African nations […]. This book gives an idea of the conditions (and
injustices) prevalent in Cameroon from the perspective of the indigenous
peoples and how they began to imagine change… and especially an
appreciation of their traditional ways that needed to be affirmed.”
Dr. Carolyn Snipes-Hoyt, Professor at Burman University, Canada.
