African Village Tales


Folktales are not invented by one person, they belong to the entire village. African village tales are an oral tradition not written down, but told to children by their parents and grandparents and handed down for generations. As you read, watch the African folktales and Proverbs remember they were created to highlight all that was noblest in man, all that was strong and selfless, all the higher instincts of nature and this was their gift to us, the folktale. They recount the Aventures of people and animals, and enlighten us on the mysteries of nature. “African Village Tales” is a collection of Aventure filled African folktales involving Mzi and Zah the Grand Children of the Chief in a Fictional Village of Nopatwa.
