Folktales are stories that are shared by successive generations of a people’s storytellers
Folktales generally attempt to help their audiences to comprehend causes and effects and to cope with cultural geographies.
Folktales typically employ animals as vehicles of closure. Animal characters therefore get human-interpreted behaviors of helping or hindering well-being. For example, sharks and snakes have every chance of role-modeling undesirable conduct what with their predilections for biting into food and non-food sources. It is a snake whose misbehavior becomes problematic in many a tale from the Hispanic and native folklores in the United States of America’s southwest.
A rattlesnake therefore resorts to misconduct unbecoming an animal until a brave roadrunner becomes a quick study in “Roadrunner’s Dance.”
