Oral Tradition

Many stories of various cultures were passed down orally from generation to generation. Ask an older relative to tell you a story that they were told when they were little. After you hear the story, write it down as you remember it, save it, then pass it on to your children.

We’d love to hear from you! Share a story passed down from your family with us!

Or, just answer the following questions and email your answers to kulturekids@yahoo.com!

  • I consider _____ to be my cultural heritage
  • Tell us a traditional story or legend, from your family, that is exciting and teaches something. Briefly relate story.
  • Tell us something that is modern and symbolic of your heritage today (e.g. music groups, dances, food, parties, gatherings….).
  • What do you do today to celebrate your heritage? Any holidays? What do you do on these holidays or at family gatherings?
