Ho

 

a city in southeastern Ghana, capital of the Volta region. Population, 46, 300 (1970). Ho is the trading center of an agricul tural area in which coconut palms, oil palms, cacao, cassava, sweet potatoes, and rice are grown. Industry includes food processing.


Ho

 

a people in India, living mainly in the state of Bihar, on the Chota Nagpur Plateau. The Ho number approximately 750,000 (1971, census). Their language is one of the Munda languages. Their religion combines animistic and Hindu elements. They engage primarily in farming; hunting is secondary. The Ho, like the other Munda peoples, are descendants of the original inhabitants of India, who were driven back into the mountainous forest regions of central India by later arrivals—first the Dravidians and then the Indo-Aryan peoples.
