Portrayal of step-children and parents as characters in selected Kifumbira folktales
MetadataShow full item record
This study was done among the Bafumbira society of Kisoro District South Western Uganda in Gatale village amid few selected people both males and females. Bafumbira societies that lived before writing, used orature in their daily life as an instructive tool to impart cultural values and morals from one generation to another especially the young. Nevertheless, most of the literature scholars basically focused on the written literature undercutting oral literature forms due to the fact that Euro-centric scholarship had considered oral literature as sheer, barbaric and backward thus, could belong to anthropology but not literature in the traditional sense of the word. In this research, I have essentially focused on the folktales which assess the portrayal of stepchildren and stepparents as characters in selected Kifumbira folktale.
