Watch the following Youtube videos that tell the story of two traditional folktales. One is from the Ashanti (African) trickster, Ananse the Spider. The other is from the Native American trickster, the coyote. After watching the videos answer the following questions in paragraph form (be sure to answer the first question in the first paragraph, the second question in the second paragraph, and the third question in the third paragraph):
1) What character traits make these figures tricksters? (Think back on our earlier powerpoint about the Trickster figure)
2) What human characteristics (behaviors, emotions, actions, features, etc.) are these tricksters given? With this human behavior in mind, what is the goal of the tricksters in these stories? How do you think they reflect human nature and their desires?
3) Why do you think their cultures retold this particular story for generations? What values and morals do they convey and what do they explain about these animals and the world they live in?
