Storytelling in Morocco

12.05.2022 / Created by Laghssais

Bochra Laghssais hails from one of the oldest civilizations that we know of, the Amazigh civilization in North Africa. The Amazigh’s history has been an oral history and no ancient texts survive due to the oral nature of this culture. Through storytelling and arts, this culture has shared its knowledge and history with future generations. It is weaved into carpets that take you on a historical journey, tattooed permanently on the bodies of people, and composed into poetry and songs.

Therefore, storytelling is a fundamental piece to record their history. Laghssais’ earlier exposure to storytelling is as a child through her grandmother telling her and her siblings’ stories about Amazigh kings and queens. It was not only to keep them entertained during long cold winter nights but also to pass on morals and values such as equity, solidarity, coexistence, and love.
