Nana Says........according to the wisdom of our ancestors,
Ano ne ano hyia, a ntoto mma - When two mouths meet, conflict does not arise.
The oral tradition found in African societies places tremendous value on the possession of an agile and wise mind, demonstrated through an articulate and thoughtful tongue. The importance of discourse, to not only resolve disputes but also to avoid them, is a hallmark of the civil societies African culture fostered. As we look back to uncover the heritage of our people, and forward to maintain our families, communities and society, the wisdom of this proverb can serve us well.
