From Thomas AndersonTiza is a small village halfway between Lawra and Jirapa. The name is derived from two Dagaare words - Te, meaning We, and zaa, meaning all. The story, which I was told a long time ago, is that a group of people looking for a place to settle decided that the area was acceptable to "all of us", "te zaa" in Dagaare.
