Tiébélé in Burkina Faso, West Africa. One of the oldest ethnic groups in the country, the Kassena people, reside in this village. This is no ordinary village. It has been the residence of the nobility of the Kassena people, such as the chief and the royal court, since the 15th century when they first settled in the area.
