Der Volksstamm der Banöho gehört zu der großen Bantuvölkerfamilie

gegenwärtig nur die Batangaküste (Kamerun). Nach ihrer Tradition wollen die
Banôho mit den weiter im Innern des mittleren und südlichen Kamerun
wohnenden Bau, Buli, Bane, Jaunde, Mgumba usw. keine Verwandtschaft
haben. Doch sollen auch sie einmal gleich ihren jetzigen Rivalen, den
Bapuku, vor Zeiten im Innern der großen Urwaldregion gewohnt haben und
durch Nachdrängen anderer Stämme von Süd-und Nordosten her allmählich
zur Küste des Atlantischen Ozeans geschoben worden sein. (aus der
Einleitung der Originalausgabe MSOS, 1907)
