This article explores the unique perspectives and uses of a traditional Upper Karoo Bushman tale retold in a cultural setting by a traditional teller. The role of the folklorist is dedicated to preserving and studying Bushman oral tradition (past and present) and the use of story for a violence prevention project by a contemporary nontraditional storyteller.
