African Folktale Story of Earths first banana tree.


As the Ancestors say, Okown was wandering the forest in search of food for his family when he came across a bag of golden seeds shaped like the sliver of the moon.

Uke, the God of seeds, was engaged in planting trees and did not notice he was missing a bag of seeds. Despite being hungry, instead of stealing the golden seeds, Okown returned them to Uke.

Uke rewarded him for his honesty with a handful of golden seeds. Okown went home and planted the seeds in his garden that grew into a beautiful, tall banana tree with shapes resembling the sliver of the moon and the color of the sun.
