dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study is to investigate whether human conduct and behaviour can be “seen” through the actions of trickster tales. This study focuses on how Bapedi people’s actions can be manifested in the actions of these tales. A variety of trickster tales will be used in trying to investigate the above claim. There will be some folktales that will be sampled from a variety of existing Literature. The sampled folktales will be brought together for analysis at the end of this study. The other folktales will be gathered from respondents. A number of respondents will be sampled through the snowballing technique. Each respondent will be interviewed through the face to face interview to gather more information in as far as folktales are concerned especially trickster tales. Gender sensitivity will be taken into cognizance when sampling the respondents in order to make the study more representative. Interviewees will be sampled from youth to senior citizens. Information gathered will thereafter be brought together with those collected from existing literature for creation of manuscripts. There manuscripts will thereafter be analysed through contend analysis technique. en_US
