Storyteller Amita Sarkari narrated an African folktale Anansi the Spider. The story of Anansi begins in Ghana in West Africa many, many years ago. People believe that Anansi was the son of a great sky god named Nyame. Anansi was very powerful and could make it rain, or tell the oceans where they should be.
Anansi had one serious weakness: he was very mischievous, or troublesome. He loved to play tricks on people. One day, Anansi’s father got so upset with his son that he turned him into a spider and took his powers away. But that didn’t stop Anansi. He may have lost his powers, but he was very smart. Anansi used his intelligence to trick and fool other animals and to get out of trouble.
