Carl Christian Reindorf (1834–1917) was a Ghanaian pastor and historian. He wrote The History of the Gold Coast and Ashanti in the Ga language. The work was later translated into English and published 1895 in Switzerland. He used written sources and oral tradition.
Reindorf was the son of Carl Hackenburg Reindorf, who was of half-Danish heritage and Anowah Cudjoe, who was an ethnic Ga from Dutch Accra. He received his early education in mission schools at Osu.
