SANKOFA SCHOOL OF ANCESTRY

THE MEANING OF SANKOFA

You must reach back to reclaim that which is lost in order to move forward. 

Sankofa:  The literal translation of the word and the symbol is it is not taboo to fetch what is at risk of being left behind.”  

The word is derived from the words:

SAN – return
KO – go
FA – look, seek and take

The 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,

The “Sankofa” is a metaphorical symbol used by the Akan people of Ghana, generally depicted as a bird with its head turned backward taking an egg from its back or a stylised heart shape.
It expresses the importance of reaching back to knowledge gained in the past and bringing it into the present in order to
make positive progress.
 It is often associated with the proverb, “Se wo were fi na wosankofa a yenkyi,” which translates “It is not wrong to go back for that which you have forgotten.” 

The SANKOFA SYMBOL was found in two 25th Dynasty Tombs in KEMET.  Therefore, when you go back, you must go back into B.C., into ALKEBULAN,  into our understanding of us as Kings and Queens, into our understanding of when we were closest to the Creator in our Spiritual Connection and Power.  ~QUEEN MIATA

The Ancestors sketched the following statement in my memory one night.  I wrote it on a pad.  The next morning while preparing for a meeting, I recognized the Sankofa symbol in the PowerPoint presentation.  I  retrieved the pad and added the statement to the Presentation.  The Ancestors were grateful of me listening and honoring them.  The Ancestors are always there ready to help.
