Adinkra symbols are symbols derived from the asante tribe of Ghana, West Africa. Each symbol possesses a spiritual meaning.
Kente is an Asante ceremonial cloth hand-woven on a horizontal treadle loom. In a total cultural context, kente is more important than just a cloth. It is a visual representation of history, philosophy, ethics, oral literature, moral values, social code of conduct, religious beliefs, political thought and aesthetic principles.
Although the Ewe (pronounced "Ev-ay") are not as well known outside Ghana as the asante they also weave many of the cloths known worldwide as kente.
