French Upper Volta was a colony of French West Africa established in 1919 from territories that had been part of the colonies of Upper Senegal and Niger and the Côte d'Ivoire. The colony was dissolved in 1932 with parts being administered by the Côte d’Ivoire, French Sudan and Niger. In 1947 the colony was revived as a part of the French Union, with its previous boundaries. In 1958, it was reconstituted as the self-governing Republic of Upper Volta within the French Community, and two years later in 1960 it attained full independence. In 1984, the name was changed to Burkina Faso.
