    The Akan calendar is based on what the Akan call 'forty days'; Adaduanan (da=day, aduanan=forty). Close examination of the cycle reveals forty-two different days, with the forty-third being the same as the first.The composition or construction of the Adaduanan cycle appears to be based on an older six-day week, still extant in some northern Guan communities such as the Nchumuru[1] The six-day week is referred to as Nanson (literally seven-days) and reflect the lack of zero in the numbering systems; the last day and the first day are both included when counting the days of a week.
