Sankofa

 In the process of evolution, studying where one comes from is necessary. Without this discipline, one is doomed to repeat the same mistake over and over again.

The concept of Sankofa was birthed from the Akan tradition and highlights this idea.  Sankofa means to go back and fetch it.

The symbol is of a bird that is looking back but moving forward.  This symbol really speaks to going back to the traditions of African thought and retrieving the highest ideals of our legacy in order evolve to the next step.

Because of this, it is important to scrutinize where our ancestors left off and  look at those ideals  to see what can work for you and what you  should let go.
