About: When Coyote was a Man, or as Europeans might say, “Once Upon a Time,” Native American folk tales were an entirely oral tradition. Sacred and spiritual in nature, many stories were saved for specific seasons or evenings of the years. Contained in the narratives was often the basis for a tribe’s specific rituals and ceremonies; the stories still act to preserve ancestral history for Native Americans today, and to preserve their heritage and customs.

Native American myths and folklore vary greatly across the great expanse of North, Central and South America; just as the sea turns into plains, turns into mountains, so the myths and deities evolve with the ever-changing landscape. If one thing connects all Native American folklore, it is that of the Great Spirit, and how spiritual forces can be felt and experienced in the physical world. The culture’s folk tales are known to symbolize seasons and nature as they honor our connection to the Earth.

Students will explore the elements of American folktales, especially tall tales, learning how they are passed on from generation to generation, how they use exaggeration, and how they convey a message or make a point. Students will identify common elements of tall tales and write a tall tale of their own, which they will read aloud to the class.

  1. Become familiar with several of the most famous American folktales and tall tales.
  2. Read "Davy Crockett," "Sally Ann Thunder Ann Whirlwind," "Johnny Appleseed," "Stormalong," "John Bunyon," and "John Henry."

Day 1 Step 1: Create interest in the lesson by asking the students if they have ever heard of John Henry, the Princess and the Pea, Johnny Appleseed, or any of Aesop's fables, like the fox and the sour grapes. Point out that stories like these are passed down to them through oral tradition, and that kids today know many of the same tales their grandparents knew as children. These are folktales, stories of the people that are part of a particular culture and tradition.

This collection of fantasy stories was originally serialized in regional newspapers, prior to being published as a complete first edition volume. These stories feature good humor and are often tongue-in-cheek. While perfectly appropriate for children, they were clearly written with adults in mind and can be enjoyed by such.

Two of the stories, "The Enchanted Types" and "The Dummy That Lived," employ knooks and ryls, the fairies that Baum would use in The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus the next year, 1902. "The Dummy That Lived" depends upon the idea of a department-store mannequin brought to life, an early expression of an idea that would be re-used by many later writers in television and films.
