Thank you all for the responses to my email.
Adinkra symbols are unique symbols of cultural expressions and proverbs that have been used in wax printing, royal symbols, carvings and jewelry in West Africa. They originate in the Ivory Coast and Ghana but the symbols are popular in West Africa and with Africans in diaspora. 
Some of the popular adinkra symbols are "Sankofa" and "Gye Nyame". This link a good list of the symbols and their meanings.
Encoding the symbols would make it easy to use them as emojis and icons and in printing of all forms. 
     Thank you,Kyekyeku
