Sankofa is an African word from the Akan tribe in Ghana. 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 Akans believe that there must be movement and new learning as time passes. As this forward march proceeds, the knowledge of the past must never be forgotten. The journey of Sankofa allows people of the diaspora a place to claim their African heritage. The trip will affect journeyman physically, mentally, and spiritually. A spiritual awakening of their connection to the motherland will allow Africans from the diaspora to reconnect with their ancestral roots.
