The symbol on this stole is the "Sankofa Bird" which depicts a bird looking backwards while flying forward. The Sankofa Bird on this stole sits on the Golden Throne, which represents Royalty. Sankofa is a Ghanaian word which means "it is not wrong to go back for that which you have forgotten.” The word is a combination of the words: san (return), ko (go), fa (seek and take). “Sankofa” teaches us to go back to our roots in order to move forward.
