MetadataShow full item record
From the ancient times, folktales have been passed on verbally among the Bagisu people. Folktales are usually imaginative, short narratives from 3-5 minutes and use mostly animal characters to convey social wisdom and help the children develop good moral and acceptable discipline. The Gishu people from the east of Uganda are one of the people whose culture and tradition makes one admire and desire to be part of them. Repetition has proven to be very instrumental in helping transmitting morality among the Bagisu people of the eastern Uganda through the folktales of our society.
