dahomey warriors

Today’s Warrior Women Wednesdays installment is Danjihuntu and Jihiwatun of the Dahomey Amazons.  The Dahomey were pretty darn horrible by both modern sentiments and those of their own time, but the M’nonmilton certainly qualify as warrior women.  Were I to tackle them as a narrative, I would likely center on the defense by their enemies of Abeokuta, a walled city built to protect folks from being captured and sold into slavery.
