The district has a heterogeneous population. The major tribe is Gonja. Other tribal groups are Vagia, Brifor, Safalba, Mo, Dagaba, Grushie and the Pantras. Settlement creation in the district is largely on adhoc basis and usually near and around farms. It is also controlled in the scattered communities dotted all over the district.
