Event description

Description

Why Mosquitoes Buzz is an African myth and folk tale created to answer the young child’s request of “why?”. Many folk tales and myths passed down from generation to generation share what is important in a culture and celebrate traditions. In Africa, stories were told around the fire each evening not only as entertainment, but to teach and inform younger generations. As we share the stories of Rabbit, Python, Monkey, Rooster and Mosquito, we pass along both the importance of continuing the traditions of our ancestors, and the wisdom of retelling of stories that have become an important part of who we are
