Sankofa: Fetching our Souls through Story. Sankofa 2016 – December is a time that we traditionally wind down and reflect on the past year and prepare for the new one to come. Sankofa is a word in the Twi language of Ghana that translates as “Go back and get it.” In the Asante Adinkra symbol represented either by a bird with its head turned backwards taking an egg off its back. The presentation will be on the need to go back and fetch our souls using story as one of the most precious tools we’ve been given. Aspects of Arthuretta’s PanaFest journey to Ghana will be woven into the presentation. Panafest is a cultural event held in Ghana every two years for Africans and people of African descent.
