In Wisdom and Initiation in Gabon, Bonaventure Mv Ondo argues that Fang tales, myths, and legends are components of the foundation of a worldview that sustains and protects a unique, historical Fang identity. The lessons transmitted from generation to generation by these marvelous stories are, Mv Ondo argues, central to living lives that reflect and perpetuate the eternal truths of the Fang experience.
