Sankofa symbolizes the Akan people’s quest for knowledge among the Akan with the implication that the quest is based on critical examination, and intelligent and patient investigation.
A mythical bird with its feet firmly planted forward with its head turned backwards is the Sankofa symbol.
Thus, the Akan believe the past serves as a guide for planning the future. To the Akan, it is this wisdom in learning from the past which ensures a strong future.
New Webinars Begin on Saturday!
