This chapter discusses the teaching of Tooy regarding Papa songs and folklore. Tooy shared his concerns about the impending loss of collective knowledge and his observations about the decline of their matrilineage. This chapter suggests that some of Tooy's Papa songs resemble folktales in their “just-so-story” character telling how Samarakas found some important aspect of their culture that was not present in the distant past.

Keywords:   Papa songs, Papa folklore, Tooy, collective knowledge, matrilineage, folktales
