Kusaase people often express their conception of life through folk-tales and proverbs. It was through this wisdom that the ancestors were able to educate their children.
With tales one enters deeply into the soul of the people, one grasps on the spot his impressions, his ideas, his feelings, his rules of life. In the folk-tales crystallizes, so to speak, the wisdom of a people. They are lessons from centuries of experience, applied to the various circumstances of practical life, lessons of common sense, words of old men. They invite the audience to be wary of appearances and to examine the hidden side of things.
In this application, 15 out of the 18 stories are recorded in audio and you can click on the speaker icon to listen and read them at the same time.
We thank all the Kusaase who helped us collect and explain these Kusaal folk-tales.

Les kusaase expriment souvent leur conception de la vie à travers des contes et des proverbes. C’est grâce à cette sagesse que les ancêtres sont parvenus à éduquer leurs enfants.
Avec les contes on entre profondément dans l’âme du peuple, on saisit sur le vif ses impressions, ses idées, ses sentiments, ses règles de vie. Dans les contes se cristallise pour ainsi dire la sagesse d’un peuple. Ce sont des leçons d’expérience des siècles, appliquées aux diverses circonstances de la vie pratique, leçons de bon sens, paroles de vieillards. Ils invitent l'auditoire à se méfier des apparences et à scruter le côté caché des choses.
