ONLINE Borough Park Presents Archforkids: The Griot in an African Village

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

The main job of the griot was to entertain the villagers with stories or traditional tales around a campfire. They would tell mythical stories of the gods and spirits of the region. They would also tell stories of kings and famous heroes from past battles. Griots were an important part of the culture and social life of the village.  Participants will make a tabletop model of an African village featuring the griot campfire. Advanced registration required.
