I did not know, it's nice to hear that, we've done a morning walk with some bushmen, I really admire these people for the way in which they interact with nature.. they are really amazing.

The Bushmen used the hollow trunks as a quiver to carry the arrows for their bows. Quiver translated to Afrikaans is Koker, which is where the name Kokerboom comes from. The tree to make quivers from.
