Here's one called ""Nea ope se obedi hene," which means "whoever wants to lead in the future must first learn to serve."
Here's a symbol called "mmere dane." It represents how everything changes in time.
They're documented in this book called "The Copyright Thing Doesn’t Work Here: Adinkra and Kente Cloth and Intellectual Property in Ghana."
I'm reading a book called "Rage Becomes Her" by Soraya Chemaly and it is excellent.
It talks about how women's anger (especially women of color) is not so much ignored as it is systematically belittled, and how that belittlement is a gaslighting strategy to decrease our motivation to exercise power. Highly recommend.

Okay. Apparently the answer to the question of how chiles got to Sichuan province is unknown to anglophone scholars who write blogs. Chiles do not appear on the manifests of Spanish and Portuguese ships that would have sailed between Asia, Europe, and North America.
Their best guess is that working class Indigenous and Mestizo ship workers liked eating chiles and brought them onto Spanish and Portuguese ships to season the crew's food. The ingredients for the crew's food wouldn't have made it onto manifests.
The article I read doesn't mention this, but chiles are full of vitamin C, so it would be a very clever innovation to eat spicy food on ships to prevent scurvy.
Now I'm going to decide on what to ferment next after I look up the history of when Sichuan food came to incorporate chiles. I'm curious about how Sichuan province in particular became an epicenter of delicious spicy chile-containing food since chiles were first cultivated by Indigenous people in the americas.
