(n.) (phr.) “go back and fetch it”; we must look back to the past so that we may understand how we became what we are, and move forward to a better future.
“Sankofa” is a word from the Twi language of Ghana that translates to “go back and get it” (San – to return; Ko – to go; Fa – to fetch, to seek and take).
It also refers to the Asante Adinkra symbol represented by a bird with its head turned backwards white its feet face forward.
