ABE DUA - PALM TREE

African Adinkra Symbol of Self-Sufficiency, resilience, vitality, and wealth

From the proverb: Nipa nnye abe dua na ne ho ahyia ne ho. Literal translation: The human being is not like the palm tree that is self-sufficient.

The palm tree is a source of various products such as oil, wine, yeast, broom, soap, mat, mushroom, and roofing material.

From this perspective, the palm tree is said to be self-sufficient.

But the human being as an individual is not self-sufficient. Thus humans need to co-operate in a system of inter-dependence in order to achieve self-sufficiency.
