Knowledge has always been power which is why education is so important, however not all education is learned in school. Stories have been integral to our shared human heritage and were first used to communicate knowledge. The Anansi tales originated from the Akan people of present-day Ghana and the name is derived from their word ananse meaning "spider". This is why Anansi often takes the shape of a spider and he is considered to be the spirit of all knowledge of stories.
Anansi is depicted in many different ways. Sometimes he looks like an ordinary spider, sometimes he is a spider wearing clothes or with a human face and sometimes he looks much more like a human with spider elements, such as eight legs. What will you teach with Anansi at your side?
