Folklore of Indonesian: Fairy Tales, Origin, and Legend in Indonesia

There is so many Indonesian folklore that Indonesia can find fairy tales, origins, and national legends where they live. There are around 34 provinces in Indonesia today. And all the provinces have their own stories, especially Fairy Tales and Legends.

These fables and legends are inherited from generation to generation so they never disappear. Because every generation there must be parents who advise their children or tell stories about things that happened a long time ago.

It’s true that basically, folklore and legends themselves have little difference. Legend is a story that happened in the past and really happened. Whereas folklore is a story of imagination made by the surrounding community where the author is not clear, as if the story actually happened in the past. In fact, folklore usually contains moral messages that can be used as lessons for children, which is what makes folklore good for advising children.
