Tourist Office: “Nansi stories in the dark”… a cultural treasure hunt against a backdrop of Saint-Martin folklore organized on October 31


The Saint-Martin Tourist Office will organize its second edition of the treasure hunt / scavenger hunt in the streets of Marigot on Sunday October 31 from 18 p.m. to 21:30 p.m.

Entitled "Nansi Stories in the Dark", this fun and cultural activity will fit perfectly into the Halloween frame! During this treasure hunt, participants will be able to test their knowledge of local myths and discover new ones: 15 myths are to be revealed by solving a riddle, taking up a challenge or answering a question. If you don't do it… you risk getting covered in a gooey substance! 


Do you know Nansi?

Is it Nansi or Anansi? Have you ever heard the expression “nansi stories”? The “nansi stories” refer to Ananse the joker, one of the most important figures in West African folklore. These stories were transmitted in Caribbean culture after slavery primarily orally and were generally proverbs used to instill wisdom. In Soualiga (Saint-Martin), there are many traditions that we carry on, without ever really knowing their origins. These popular myths have often shaped the way we are and our everyday life.
