Pronounced ‘sang-ko-fah’, this word from the Adinkra symbols used by the Akan people of Ghana and the Ivory Coast (West Africa)
means – ‘to go back and fetch’. The image used is of a bird with its head turned backwards.
There is no shame in going back to fetch what you have left behind, or to return and correct a mistake.
Learning from the past allows you to plan well for the future.
