History of the Appalachian People
  • When settlers from Europe came to the
    Appalachian mountains, they brought with them
    their own cultures.

The stories they knew were changed to fit their
new world.
Because of their isolation, many of the stories
and songs stayed similar to their European
homelands.
16
History of the Appalachian People
  • One of the story characters they brought with
    them was Jack from stories like Jack and the
    Beanstalk.

They changed Jack so that he became more of an
American character.
But you will notice that some of the stories
about Jack the Jack Tales are similar to
fairy tales you have heard.

The Appalachian Region
  • The Appalachian mountains are found in the
    eastern United States and extend from Georgia to
    Maine.

The name Appalachia comes from the Appalachee
tribe of Northern Florida. It means endless
mountain range.
The geographical region known as Appalachia is
named after the mountain chain which serves as a
barrier from the outside world.
The isolation that the mountains bring has
preserved the culture and many traditions.

Characteristics of the Appalachian People
  • The inhabitants of this area are traditionally
    very independent.

Many have survived in the mountains for
generations by subsistence farming.
Family is very important to the Appalachian
people.
23
Jack Tales
  • Jack tales are stories that have been told in
    Appalachia for hundreds of years.

Jack tales have an oral tradition. That means
that people tell the stories rather than write
them down.
This is called storytelling and is an example of
a way people pass on their tradition and culture.
24
  • I have a Jack Tale I want to share with you.
  • Remember what we have learned about how cultures
    use myths, legends, folk tales and storytelling
    to share a human experience, pass on their
    traditions and culture, for recreational purposes
    and for artistic expression.

25
Jack and the Giants
26
  • Next time, you will complete an Exit Slip to
    review what you have learned.
  • Then we are going to spend some time talking a
    little more about storytelling, reading some
    books and watching folk tale movies in the next
    couple of weeks to learn all about Appalachia and
    their culture.

27
  • Storytelling and folk tales change and develop
    over the years. The folk tales told in Appalachia
    now are a little different from they way they
    were first told, years ago.
  • Heres an example.
