Koki in Manjibo for Abby’s Birthday

What you see here is koki, a traditional dish from my province of the Mbo people, made from crushed koki beans, wrapped in banana leafs and mixed with piment and palm oil, that is cooked (also see the traditional oven here) to produce koki itself! We celebrated Abby’s birthday in her village, about an hour away from my town of Bare.
