"…[I]t is only the story that can continue beyond the war and the warrior.
It is the story that outlives the sound of war-drums and the exploits of brave fighters.
It is the story...that saves our progeny from blundering like blind beggars
into the spikes of the cactus fence.
The story is our escort; without it, we are blind.
Does the blind man own his escort? No, neither do we the story;
rather it is the story that owns us and directs us."
Chinua Achebe, Anthills of the Savannah "I will tell you something about stories....They aren't just entertainment... They are all we fight off illness and death. You don't have anything if you don't have the stories." Leslie Marmon Silko, epigraph to Ceremony Traditionally, Africans have revered good stories and storytellers, as have most past and present peoples around the world who are rooted in oral cultures and traditions. Ancient writing traditions do exist on the African continent, but most Africans today, as in the past, are primarily oral peoples, and their art forms are oral rather than literary. In contrast to written "literature," African "orature" (to use Kenyan novelist and critic Ngugi wa Thiong’o's phrase) is orally composed and transmitted, and often created to be verbally and communally performed as an integral part of dance and music. The Oral Arts of Africa are rich and varied, developing with the beginnings of African cultures, and they remain living traditions that continue to evolve and flourish today.

Storytelling, the Meaning of Life,
and The Epic of Gilgamesh
Arthur A. Brown Stories do not need to inform us of anything. They do inform us of things. From The Epic of Gilgamesh , for example, we know something of the people who lived in the land between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in the second and third millenniums BCE. We know they celebrated a king named Gilgamesh; we know they believed in many gods; we know they were self-conscious of their own cultivation of the natural world; and we know they were literate. These things we can fix or establish definitely. But stories also remind us of things we cannot fix of what it means to be human. They reflect our will to understand what we cannot understand, and reconcile us to mortality.
We read The Epic of Gilgamesh
To see for ourselves the meaning of a story, we need, first of all, to look carefully at what happens in the story; that is, we need to look at it as if the actions and people it describes actually took place or existed. We can articulate the questions raised by a character's actions and discuss the implications of their consequences. But we need to consider, too, how a story is put together how it uses the conventions of language, of events with beginnings and endings, of description, of character, and of storytelling itself to reawaken our sensitivity to the real world. The real world is the world without conventions, the unnameable, unrepresentable world in its continuity of action, its shadings and blurrings of character, its indecipherable patterns of being. The stories that mean most to us bring us back to our own unintelligible and yet immeasurably meaningful lives.

Learn to Speak Video Like a Pro
Good news! It's never been easier to shoot and edit video. Video cameras are commonplace in homes and schools. Better yet, digital video (DV) is fast becoming the standard. My name is Greg Beck. In over twenty years as a school media specialist and part-time video producer, I have helped hundreds of people, from pre-teens to teachers and other adults, learn to tell stories with video. I'd like to help you do the same! Thanks to personal computers and programs like Apple's iMovie and Microsoft's Movie Maker 2 , editing video no longer means dealing with complicated videotape systems. Editing digital video on a computer, called non-linear editing , makes it easy to combine images, sounds, music and narration into a single finished production.

95. Storytelling
Folktales of the Micmac and Maliseet Indians.
There are many storytellers in Maliseet and Micmac communities today. Children hear ancient legends and tales and learn the history of their communities by talking with their elders. The stories they hear may have originated hundreds or even thousands of years ago.
Traditional stories are often put into modern dress. In these, relatives, colourful "characters", devils and ghosts, honest or nasty ancestors, neighbours and pets take the place of the people and animals in the old tales.
For example, the traditional figure of the stranger who appeared in the tales of the early 1900s to warn Sunday dancers about their sinful behavior - and later turned out to be the Devil himself - may now show up in tales as an unfamiliar dog or horse, whose appearance warns that a death will soon occur in the community.
Today, speakers of Maliseet and Micmac observe that storytellers use the tone of voice most natural to the Native language- soft, evenly paced, steady and gently rythmic. Stories also use the richest Native-language vocabulary, with very few, if any, English words. In short, they use language that is the least influenced by European language or culture.
In addition, storytelling reflects the way people think and behave as speakers of Maliseet or Micmac. For example, as we saw earlier, the flapping of Wocawson's wings, rather than

For the Jim Henson production, see The Storyteller
Storytelling is the art of portraying in words images , and sounds what has happened in real or imagined events. The oldest forms of storytelling were oral. Later, stories could be conveyed by sculptures or writings on stone, wood, or parchment Modern technology adds to all of the previous techniques for storytelling the motion picture , together with oral dialog, images, sound effects , and musical accompaniment. But whether in olden times or in modern times, the challenge of storytelling was the same: How do you get across the complexity in the events of the story The Boyhood of Raleigh by Sir John Everett Millais , oil on canvas,
A seafarer tells the young Sir Walter Raleigh and his brother the story of what happened out there at sea. Young Raleigh's toy boat is in the lower left.
Oral traditions
People in all times and places have told stories. In the oral tradition, storytelling depends on an audience: the listeners create the images from the words told by the storyteller. In this, the audience is co-creator of the art. Storytellers dialogue with their audience - adjusting their words to respond to the listeners and adjust to the moment.

99. Storytelling
storytelling is one person telling others of something. In formal storytelling today, the teller prepares a story to present to their listeners.
The Topic:
Easier - Since people began to communicate with each other, "Tell me a story" has been a request of both children and adults. Storytelling is one person telling others of something. The story can be of a real event or it can be made up. Storytelling is often a part of our everyday conversations. Harder - Storytelling is one of the earliest forms of folkart. Storytelling probably first consisted of simple chants that praised the dawn, expressed the joy of being alive, and were used to ease the drudgery and boredom of laborious tasks. Later the storyteller became the community entertainer by combining their stories with poetry, music, and dance. The storyteller also evolved into the group historian. This was the beginning of professional storytelling. Storytelling during the Middle Ages was expanded into the art of the traveling troubadour, who journeyed across the land. They were welcomed in castle, court, and market place. They gathered the news, conveyed the best tales, and were expected to know the favorites in each region. The invention of moveable type and the development of the print publishing business led to reading replacing listening, and the decline of storytelling.
