The Gurunsi are a set of ethnic groups like the Bwa, Ko, Lele, Nuni, and Sissala in Burkina Faso. The small country near the border to Ghana may not have many resources or economic wealth, but with the plentiful raw materials available the people make some of the most culturally rich and architecturally beautiful villages.
