Sankofa: let’s go back and get what was lost!

Dec 27, 12 Sankofa: let’s go back and get what was lost!

Sankofa can mean either the word in the Akan language of Akanland that translates in English to “go back and get it” (san – to return; ko – to go; fa – to look, to seek and take) or the Asante Adinkra symbols of a bird with its head turned backwards taking an egg off its back, or of a stylized heart shape. It is often associated with the proverb, “Se wo were fi na wosankofa a yenkyi,” which translates “It is not wrong to go back for that which you have forgotten.”
