Publisher's Synopsis

Sankofa Pronounced [SAHN-koh-fah] is an Akan word that means to "retrieve" to literally go back and get. It is immortalised in the Sacred Adinkra symbol system of Ghana, as a mythical bird which looks back as its feet face forward, carrying a precious egg.

Join young Sankofa as he asks his beloved family members why they look backward on his journey to find his own reasons to turn.

"Have you heard of the Sankofa bird?

Before he understood,

why looking backward,

was important and good.

Young Sankofa was different,

what did he lack?

While he faced forward, his family looked back."
