The Republic of Ghana, formerly called the Gold Coast, located on the west coast of Africa has very rich cultural heritage that dates as far back as the medieval Ghana (4th to the 13th century). Ghana can boast of a very rich tradition of indigenous and contemporary artifacts of exceptional intriguing philosophical values and qualities. Nevertheless, show that the volume of consumption by African Americans of these artifacts, during festivals like the Pan African Festival (PANAFEST) and other expositions or as tourists, far outstripped that of Ghanaian indigenes. This paper attempts to make an in-depth analysis into the trend in consumption of artifacts and come out with proposals that could encourage the average Ghanaian to patronize Ghanaian artifacts. These proposals will not only help promote growth in the arts and associated industries, increase trade ties between Africans in the Diaspora and Ghana, but also generate more revenue for national development
