They are the original people of Ghana....modern Gur are the Guan people. They speak Guan but a vast majority speak either Akuapim, Krobo or Ga.....they are mostly in and around Akropong Suhum and to some extent parts of. Entire eastern region.

Then again I could be wrong but this is what I recall.

getting answers from them for my non academic questions will be a tall task. I would like to know if there are any Ghana cultural centers in the U.S that I can ask these kind of questions?

Id like to encourage you to establish such a center in USA. Truthful to my word the Gur are a people much like Ewe and Ashanti are a people....its like asking if Apache or ScottsIrish has a meaning! Common boo, seldom to do names of a tribe or clan have a meaning.....Who told you about Gur? Why the curiosity about the epidemiology of the word?

I am black American trying to get answers to questions for better understanding. They do have different African cultural organization in the US but I know no Ghana one. I believe your words; I just want in depth explanation to the people, name, ancestry etc. My research is biblically based. I have found a lot of words in Ebry (Hebrew) language that are exact matches in Bantu languages especially Zulu. A lot of names in Bible text can be found in Africa; so this is also leading me to get a better understanding of the people and culture on the continent...... I am researching, gathering what I can find to draw a conclusion

Hopefully this will appease your patience :02.47-tranquillity:
