Example of Oral Tradition

Oral tradition is a method of passing on cultural lore and beliefs through recital of traditional tales and rituals. This is an ancient form of storytelling, and the basis of early literary forms like Aesop, where parables and allegories are used as moral tales. Oral traditions are extremely important in some cultures like the Australian Aboriginal culture.

Examples of Oral Tradition:

One Australian Aboriginal elder alone provided the complete lore of local tribes to a museum in 17 different dialects.
Ancient European cultures like the Celts are known to have had an exclusively oral tradition with strong emphasis on the disciplines of accurate rendition.
