    • Trickster tales
    • Elements
      of a
      Trickster Tale
    • Trickster Tales
      Are Fiction Stories
      (not true)
    • Characters are usually animals that
      Talk and act like humans,
      but they retain their animal traits.
    • They are short stories that usually
      have only two or three characters.
      Iktomi and the Buzzard
    • Some trickster tales are about
      weak people or tiny animals
      outwitting their stronger enemies.
    • They are very old stories passed
      Down from one generation to another. Originally told orally. They reflect
      the culture in which they originated.
    • Action builds through repetition.
      There is an exciting climax at the end.
      Goodness and intelligence win out
      over evil and foolishness.
    • Trickster Tales end with a moral
      or a lesson.
      “If a person is clever, it is because someone has taught them their cleverness.”
    • Setting takes place in the distant past
      or a timeless place.
      desert
      jungle
      forest
    • There is usually a problem and
      a solution to the problem.
      "Coyote takes water from the Frog people... because it is not right that one people have all the water."
    • Told from a 3rd person
      point of view.
