The Baobab Tree

The baobab tree can have a circumference of more than 20 meters. This means that it takes more than one outstretched arm to circle a baobab tree. There is a saying among the Ewe of Ghana which likens wisdom to the baobab tree. It suggests that wisdom, like the baobab tree, cannot be fully embraced by any one person. Baobab People realizes the importance of this message, that it will take many different people from many different parts of the world to engage in a discourse of cultural issues.
