Akoko Nan means “the hen’s feet”. It refers to the Akan proverb “when the hen treads on her young ones, she does not mean to kill them”. In other words, although parents are sometimes tough on their children, it is not their intention to harm them. This symbol represents parenthood, care, parental education and patience.
