The fable of Anansi the spider originated in West Africa in the 17th century during the reign of the powerful Ashanti kingdom. He was said to be a spider with such incredible wit and cunning, the gods gave him the gift of spinning stories. Over time he came to be regarded as the original bearer of stories and the owner of all the stories in the world. ANANSESEM means “spider stories.”
