FALSE BANANA

A woman from the Dorze Tribe is standing proudly in the middle of false banana plants, in the backyard of her house. ⁠⠀ The Dorze is a small ethnic group living in the Southern Guge Mountain of Ethiopia.⁠⠀ Their main village, Chencha, lies in the middle of false banana forest (named as false banana because it is very similar and a close relative to the banana plant).⁠⠀ From the leaves of the plants they recover the juice that will be fermented to obtain kocho (traditional bread) which is buried and aged underground.⁠⠀
