This symbol represents "unity of purpose", strength, and confidence. The dance style named after the symbol, Tabono is created by Abena Beloved Green used drum-based music and seeks to weave traditional movement, perspectives, and stories into the modern-day context. Dance moves are based on traditional dances such as sorsonet, bamaya, gahu, and Kpanlogo.

Author of The Way We Hold On

“The Way We Hold On is Abena Beloved Green's debut book of poetry. Her poems address cultural, social, and environmental issues, relationships, and reflect on everyday life as a small-town raised, semi-nomadic, first-generation Canadian. Here are poems about holding on and letting go—of ideas, opinions, beliefs, people, places, and things.” https://www.chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/books/contributor/author/abena-beloved-green/
