African Folk Tales By: Kwaku A. Adoboli The author picked up his love of folk tales from his father and his uncle, Okuma Totokpuiti Gamega. In the evening, the kids and some adults sat in a circle around the storytellers listening to the tales. The audience was alive and active, interjecting short songs, remarks, and dances as the tales progressed. Folk tales are for entertainment. That is why the songs and dances come in. The tellers themselves may sing and dance. The children are allowed to tell their tales. Folk tales also teach lessons in obedience, loyalty, forgiveness, justice, and more. Folk tales encompass oral literature, adages, grammar, and dos and don’ts of the language. The tales are meant to teach the young people the customs and norms of their society. They are different from oral history. Oral histories are more involved and cover the behaviors and experiences of the people. The author’s father told these tales with animation, joy, and happiness in three languages: IGO, EWE, and TWI. The tales are universal and can be told in any language. Interpret and propound wisdoms to children and adults in any society. The Western World is aware of the famous African drums, rhythms, and songs. Now the author brings you the unique folk tales. They are not poems to repeat word by word. They are not told the same way twice. The readers can embellish and adjust them to given situations, use them in entertainment, or in expounding moral lessons. Folk tales are for action and are full of active verbs. All the American based tales were originated by the author.

African folk tales have been around for centuries. The beauty of Africa shines through the stories of creation, animals that talk, and the wisdom of African proverbs and sayings. Raymond Johnson has collected these stories for years, using these stories in his practice as a therapist. He discovered, while counseling families, that by using an opening story, it brought calmness and attention while reducing defensiveness of family members. This opens to door for future abstract-thought development. Overall, these stories enforce the wisdom of the ages from the African Continent.
