The Akrafena sword originates from the Ashanti tribe, located in central Ghana. It was originally meant for warfare but is now used in ceremonies to symbolise courage, responsibility and bravery.
The etchings engraved upon the sword are the Adinkra symbols used to convey the message of the mission; Osram, (The Moon) reflecting patience and understanding and Nsoromma (The Star) representing guardianship.
The hilt of the sword is topped with a clenched fist; the universal sign of resistance against oppressors and the iconic symbol for Black Power. The importance of these symbols and their meaning echo’s from their ancient inception through the ages, because Black Lives Matter today, tomorrow and forever.
