Lets Break it Down...
Sankofa is a word in the Twi language of Ghana that means
"Go Back & Get It"
SAN – go back
KO - to go
FA - to fetch, to seek and take
The symbol is illustrated two ways;
1) by a bird with its head turned backwards retrieving an egg on its back, or
2) as a stylish heart-shaped design.
The image of the mythological bird with its head looking backward has been interpreted and re-interpreted many different ways. More commonly, however, it is seen as embracing one’s heritage or returning to a person’s roots. It reinforces the idea of community and family and using past experiences to help build a better future.
