Welcome to the UBC Asian Folklore Archives!

These digital archives feature tales, proverbs, riddles, jokes, games, recipes, beliefs, art, songs, music, dance, customs, and countless other forms of folk expression, collected by students at the University of British Columbia. These items have been recorded from actual informants in the field, and constitute a living, growing database of new and old cultural traditions that are popular in the countries of Asia, and within diasporic Asian communities around the world.
