I Want to Eat Matoke, I Want to Eat Matoke

If you’ve never eaten (or sang a song about) Ugandan food, you’re missing out!

When we chant the Ugandan “Keenene” in class we empower kids to demand the Ugandan food they want to eat — “I want to eat raspberries! I want to eat raspberries!” If we were to chant in Uganda, kids might demand matoke (a starchy cousin of a banana), ugali/posho (cornmeal porridge used to sop up stew) and chapati (sweet South Asian flat bread). Or they may very well demand raspberries.
