caterinasforzas:

what to wear when…in a ghanaian fairy tale (requested by eccentriccuttlefish and annielaurie).

examples: fɛfɛw baa ɛmpene owuo (the beautiful woman who refused to die), kuafo mybrow na saman (farmer mybrow and the fairies), quarcoo bah-boni (the bad boy)

the akan call [ghanaian fairy tales] akanse stories; the ewe, gli; the ga, adesa; and the wali, h’lima.
in most [ghanaian] tales, animals and objects are the characters. they may represent human beings. very often, the role of each animal in a tale depicts its nature and character. for instance, if the tale chosen is about stealing, a cat plays the role of the thief. if it is about bullying, a lion is chosen.
the following animals are usually mentioned in ghanaian tales: adanko (hare), akyekyerɛ (tortoise), agyinamowa (cat), kisi (rat), ɔtwe (antelope), kurotwamansa (leopard), awendade (lion), son (elephant), ɔtwea (dog), kɔtɔ (crab), anoma (bird), abowatena (snake), nkran (ant), prako (pig), ampan (bat), etc…the main character in most tales is ananse (spider), who is always the hero.other characters in [ghanaian fairy tales] are gods, ancestors, death, hunters, rivers, mountains, trees, and so on…each of these characters has a special role to play…for instance, when the gods, ancestors, and death appear in a tale, they do so to emphasize the importance of our taboos.
