Storytelling_Past – Present – Future

Storytelling is as old as speech itself. As society developed, people wanted to keep a historical account of events that affected their people. Storytellers carried the key role in the preservation of historical information and communicating it to new generations. In some cases, stories featured animals to satirize tribal events. By using animals, storytellers could make fun of tribal leaders without fear of retribution. Thus, fables were born.
