Abstract

The existence of oral literature cannot be ignored. Although today its existence is sunk by written literature (text), it does not mean oral literature is not used anymore. Oral literature is still used by caregivers or parents as a means of storytelling to their children. Even in elementary and elementary schools, teachers still tell stories related to fairy tales, legends, and myths. This can happen because oral literature belongs to modest people, the wider community. Oral literature or folklore is a legacy from our ancestors. Many values taught by ancestors through folklore are believed to bring peace and happiness. Older people expect the next generation to be better so that they instill the values that are considered good to be used as a guideline by the next generation.
