Somali Folktales

In 2006, the Minnesota Humanities Center, in collaboration with the Minnesota Somali community, launched the Somali Bilingual Book Project. Our shared goal isto ensure the community has high-quality authentic resources that promote and preserve heritage languages and increase English literacy skills of refugee and immigrant families. The project culminated with the publication of four traditional Somali folktales in both English and Somali, as well as dual-language audio and video recordings.
