Tiger Tales

Tiger Tiger TalesTiger Tales,
a Tiger Elective Adventure

The Tiger Den Leader guide says, “Our past is exciting and important for Scouts to understand.  Tiger Tales offers a glimpse of songs, stories, and customs that have been passed down through families and groups of people about the history of America.  Some stories are about real people such as Davy Crockett or Daniel Boone.  Their stories tend to be exaggerated to make them seem bigger than life.  Other times, stories are about fictional characters capable of amazing things that seem impossible.  Either way, tall tales and folk songs offer the spirit of American life from our ancestors telling us about their happiness, fears, dreams, and the hopes they shared.”
