Pearls of Wisdom: African and Caribbean Folktales
by:
Raouf Mama and Mary Romney
with illustrations by Siri Webber Feeney
Levels: Elementary/High School to Adult
Intermediate to advanced proficiency

 

There are three components to this fascinating and enjoyable collection of stories from Africa and the Caribbean: The Listening and Reading Book, The Integrated Language Skills Workbook, and a Recording of the folktales on 2 cassettes or 2 CD's. The stories have been collected by Dr. Raouf Mama, a West African Griot (master story teller).

The text contains twelve stories for reading and/or following along with Dr. Mama's authentic and dramatic recording. Reading is at the intermediate skill level.

The workbook is designed to maximize language learning by providing a variety of exercises in all skill areas and vocabulary development. The answers are provided in the back of the book for easy self-study or homework.

The recordings bring the stories to life, allowing the listener to experience the power and excitement of involvement in an oral tradition, a tradition as old as civilization itself.

The collection includes: How Chameleon Became a Teacher (Benin), Why Hawk Preys on Chicks (Nigeria), Pearl of Wisdom (Gabon), Anancy and the Guinea Bird (Antigua), How Goat Moved to the City (Haiti), Why Cat and Dog Are Always Fighting (Cape Verde), A Fisherman and His Dog (Puerto Rico), Monkey's Argument with Leopard (Congo), and four other classic tales.

Pearls of Wisdom: Introduction

Folktales are one of the oldest forms of literary art, and are to be found in every culture in the world. From the beginning of history, people have used folktales as a traditional means of teaching moral and cultural values and as a tool for educating children and preparing them for adult life. Furthermore, most folktales from one culture have equivalents in another, and this makes them universal. Because of their universality, and the power and simplicity of their language, folktales are ideal for teaching language and literacy skills. This book is an attempt to promote, through the power of folktales, the teaching and learning of English language skills.

All but one of the tales in this book are either from Africa or have African roots. This book contains eight folktales from West Africa, one from Central Africa and three from the Caribbean. Two of the Caribbean stories, in turn, are originally from Africa.

Most of the West African tales are from the Fon ethnic group in the Republic of Benin. The African folktales in this book fall into four broad categories: explanatory tales, sacred tales, trickster tales, and cautionary tales.

Among the Fon tales, How Chameleon Became a Teacher is an explanatory tale that describes the origins of the behavior and appearance of chameleons. The Greedy Father is a cautionary tale. The Gold Ring is a sacred tale. How Yogbo the Glutton was Tricked is a trickster tale, and The Prince and the Orphan is a sacred tale that is a variant of the Cinderella story.

From the other West African tales, Why Hawk Preys on Chicks is an explanatory tale from the Ibo ethnic group, the third largest in Nigeria, whose great oral tradition has yet to be adequately documented. Why Cat and Dog Are Always Fighting is also an explanatory tale, this one from Cape Verde, an island nation off the coast of Senegal. Pearl of Wisdom is a cautionary tale from Gabon, a French speaking country in West Africa. It came to our attention through a broadcast on "Africa No. 1," a multinational radio station funded by France. The tale is about the importance of names in Gabonese culture in particular, and in African culture in general.

Monkey's Argument with Leopard is a trickster tale from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire) in Central Africa.

Anancy and the Guinea Bird is a tale from the island of Antigua. Anancy is a character who appears as a trickster in many Caribbean folktales, but who originates from Ghana in West Africa. How Goat Moved to the Village is a Haitian tale that calls to mind the biblical story of the unmerciful servant in Matthew 18:23-25. The fact that one of the characters is a hyena and another a lion is an indication of the African origin of the tale. The Fisherman and His Dog is a tale from Puerto Rico, where many people of African descent have settled. Taino, the name of the dog, is named after the indigenous people of Puerto Rico.

Two of the Caribbean stories mentioned above are clearly of African origin and, as everyone knows, many people of African descent live not only in the Caribbean but also in North, Central, and South America. This movement of a people from their homeland to other parts of the world is known as a diaspora. See map on page xiii.

The African diaspora is the phrase describing the various groups of people of African descent who live outside of Africa. In most cases this diaspora was brought about by the infamous transatlantic slave trade, which took place over three and a half centuries, from the early 16th century through the middle of the 19th century. From 1519 to 1867, approximately 12 million Africans were transported on European slave ships from Africa to the Americas. The slave trade was conducted by trading companies from several European countries: Britain, France, the Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, and Denmark. Thousands of ships carried slaves primarily from the coast of West Africa to many colonies and territories in the Americas.

The forced displacement of people from Africa to the Americas resulted in the transfer of many cultural traditions along with the enslaved people. For example, in the United States, music such as work songs, spirituals, gospel, blues, jazz, and rock and roll have resulted directly from the musical and rhythmic traditions that the slaves brought with them from Africa. In the other countries of the diaspora, different types of music have evolved directly from West African musical traditions.

Another result of the African diaspora has been the spread of the African oral tradition. This oral tradition has survived among people of African descent even into the twenty-first century. This book is a sampling of the multitude of stories from this tradition, collected and told to you by a West African "griot," or storyteller, who brings them to you from his native Africa and countries of the African diaspora.

 

Book Reviews

from Hands-On-English
This review appeared in the May/June 2002 issue.
by Anna Silliman

Stories are certainly the most interesting teaching material, and you can never have too many of them at your disposal. For intermediate through advanced level students, this collection, along with the workbook materials and cassettes, makes a beautiful addition to your story repertoire.

Hands-on English has mentioned other folktales books in previous issues. What sets this one apart? The stories are powerful. Like Aesop's fables, they teach a lesson, but more profound and complex ones than in other tales.The stories are not remotely childlike; they raise questions as much as they answer them. In a nutshell, they provide food for thought and learning.

The excellent workbook expands vocabulary learning but more importantly draws out discussion of the meaning of the story. Students explore the moral of the story, discuss the themes found there (trust, betrayal, deception) and discuss relevant proverbs ("Do unto others..." . A set of interesting questions encourages students to relate the themes of the story to their personal experience ("Have you ever been robbed or deceived by someone?"), and to the broader contexts of groups and cultures ("Do you know of long-time conflicts between groups?"). As a final step, students discuss symbols and metaphors related to the story.

The wisdom of the stories will be of universal interest and will provide a chance for people of all cutlers to share ideas. At the same time, it is wonderful that they bring a flavor of the African Diaspora to us and to our students.

Usually the cassette tape is the part you can do without if you are trying to save money, but in this case, we highly recommend the tapes. The beautiful and dramatic recording of the tales will add a new dimension to your lessons.
