The Dahomey Amazons or Mino was an all female military regiment of the Fon people of the Kingdom of Dahomey in the present day Republic of Benin. They existed from the 17th century to the end of the 19th century. While European narratives refer to the women soldiers as “Amazons,” because of their similarity to the semi mythical Amazons of ancient Anatolia, they called themselves Ahosi (king’s wives) or Mino (our mothers) in the Fon language.” #TRUTH
