History of Astronism in Burkina Faso
As of December 2020, the government of Burkina Faso does not recognise Astronism as a religion in the country. Despite this, Burkina Faso has a positive record in adhering to its religious freedom laws set down in its constitution. For this reason, Astronists are generally considered as free to practice and profess their faith publicly without incident.
With the main language in the country being French, this does represent a barrier for Burkinan Astronists to access the currently largely English body of Astronist content.
As of 2020, Astronists number 1,934 in the country of Burkina Faso.
