Ursula - you mightht want to point out the moral teachings interspersed
with history in
much African story-telling. A person growing up in a traditional village
would have received a great deal of practical knowledge; an awareness of
correct behavior according to the mores of the group; a mythology which
explains the natural world and one's place in it,all through the
entertaining and reassuring repetition of stories. Laurie Muelder
