Sankofa ("Sanko"-Go Back and "fa"-Take) is a term derived from a proverb from the Akan people of West Africa meaning "go back and take". �Sankofa" Bird: Sankofa is a mythical bird that flies forward while looking backward with an egg (symbolizing the future) in its mouth.
It literally translates from the Swahili language to mean, �It is not taboo to go back and fetch what you forget.�
Reaching back to the past to both honor it and retrieve what was either forgotten or lost. By fetching the wisdom of our cultural past and living it in the present, we can create a more prosperous future for our children.
