Abstract:

These Kabba folk stories have been recorded in the Central African Republic
in 1998. They were told by gifted Kabba storytellers to a mixed audience of
adults and children. Jean-Pierre Dingatoloum transcribed them. A number of
different Kabba speakers, translated them into French. Rosmarie Moser
translated them into English and Knut Olawsky into German.

Traditional folktales play an important educational role in African
societies. They express cultural values through metaphorical narratives and
the personification of animals and mythical creatures. They contain covert
meanings and messages and they are both amusing and thought-provoking.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any
