1. Ifuatayo ni mifano ya vitangulizi; (influenced by honoured ancestors from de Afreekan shores to de diaspora of righteousness, en sages)

                                     II. Hadithi ya Mti wa Maisha (Tree of Life)

 Wahusika (Characters/participants en co-creators – kama de story of De Fairy Mbweha)

Mhusika ni kiumbe wa kifasihi anayefanana au anayewakilisha binadamu. wahusika wa hadithi wanaweza kuwa binadamu, wanyama, miti, mimea, mawe au vifaa vilivyopewa sifa

za binadamu. mapaka kati ya ulimwengu wa kawaida wa binadamu na wanyama haupo hadithini.

Katika baadhi ya hadithi, wanyama wakubwa huweza kushindwa na wanyama wadogo. Hii huwa ni njia ya kuwakejeli na kuwadhihaki wenye uwezo na nguvu lakini wasiotumia akili zao. Viumbe wakubwa na wa kudhaniwa kama mazimwi na majitu husawiriwa kama viumbe

Jamii mbalimbali huwa na wahusika tofauti wanaowakilisha sifa maalumu kwa mfano:wanaoongozwa na tamaa kubwa, ulafi na uovu uliokithiri. Hii ni njia mojawapo ya kuakisi sifa zinazoonekana mbaya katika jamii.

Afrika Kati (Central) Mbweha (fox) Mwerevu, mjanja

Mighani (Legends)

Ni hadithi zinazohusu mashujaa walioishi au wanaoaminiwa kuishi na wanaosifiwa sana katika jamii (aka. egun/sheps/ Honoured ancestors).

Aghalabu, mashujaa hawa waliongoza jamii katika vita fulani, ukombozi fulani au wakati fulani mugumu. Mashujaa hawa wa mighani huitwa majagina. Jagina hung’ang’a na hali ngumu unayosababishwa na maadui wanaoitwa majahili.

De ‘mama’ of The big bang theory

There are many stories (we know bout de earth en how it floats in space….) we tell ourselves that don’t get shared as much as others, depending where you look at it from….

hadithi ya ancien tradishuns like Wives of de Lione/ss, remixed.

Hadithi? Hadithi? Ukweli njoo, Utamu kolea….

it is betta to die on our feet than to live on our knees

Hapo zamani za kale, karudi baba mmoja, toka safari ya mbali

kavimba yote mapaja, na kutetemeka mwili

Watoto wake wakaja, ili kumtaka hali
wakataka na kauli, iwafae maishani.

Akatamka mgonjwa, ninaumwa kwelikweli
hata kama nikichanjwa,haitoki homa kali
roho naona yachinjwa,kifo kimenikabili
kama mnataka mali mtayapata shambani.

[….]alipokwisha kutaja
fumbo hili la akili
mauti nayo ikaja
roho ikaacha mwili
watoto wote pamoja
wakakumbuka kauli
kama mnataka mali mtaipata shambani.
