Sankofa Symbol Earrings
SANKOFA is an Akan word, a Ghanian local tribe. It derives from the words SAN (return), KO (go), and FA (look, seek and take). The literal translation of Sankofa is “it is not taboo to fetch what is at risk of being left behind”.
Sankofa refers to the <a "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adinkra_symbols">Bono Adinkra symbol that is represented as a mythical bird with its head turned back and mouth near its valuable eggs representing the future. The bird further has its legs firmly stretched forward, flying with a stylized heart.
