The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

 New Zealand is a new country. One that has been inhabited less than 1000 years ago, colonised as a nation less than 200 years.  Our folk history isn't deep or long

  Here though is a traditional Maori song. The  choir is co incidently from the high school my children attended.  Fun fact - most if the choir is Pacific Island  students.  The Pasifika  people have amazing church choirs.

http://youtu.be/9rMAi-IUACI

Here is a Maori war chant, one oft used in sports games  and school cultural performance  competitions  and to welcome VIP.  Again most of our national  rugby team are Pasifika. Fun fact - it was written by  an infamous  Maori warrior chief in the 1800s. Te Rauparaha.  I have non biological family connections to him.

 This is the closest we have to a sea shanty. It's the unofficial national anthem, our official one is a shocker.  This is an NZ new wave band from the late 70s. Fun fact - the  recorded title is a sanitised version of the original. Hey it was the late 70s and they were a pub band.

"Lullaby" Russian. But not folklore. And not a real lullaby.

Here is the author - http://www.zemlinski.ru

Although, now old folk art it too can be considered bleak. Blood, guts, and dismemberment.

To my child I sing this - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0aj9go7qy4s

But of course with the other intonation.

Sorry for the errors, rudeness and stupidity. It's not me, this online translator. Really convenient?

 Most folk songs and folk tales  are rather bleak  and horrifying.  Abandonment in the wild forest,  hands and legs amputated by woodsmen, poisoning, hexes,  immolation,

That's why I love folklore Smiley

Although the children's Tales of Hans Christian Andersen, that's really makes you cry.

I showed a "lullaby" song that I sing to my child. It's an old enough song about a revolutionary hero.
But as it turned out, its many people use as a lullaby. I'm not alone Smiley

There was even a small report at a scientific conference, unfortunately I do not have the text, but only the theses of this report.

Not a song, BUT, my favourite quote was from a huge tome we had as children - 'The (something) Book of Fairy Tales' - supposed to be pretty much every fairy tale there ever was. This one ended with; "...And the wicked witch was put in a barrel lined with nails and dragged up and down the street by six white horses until she was dead." I loved that bit!

Can't remember what the fairy tale was about, but that ending was memorable. Although it does bring up so many questions. Why white horses? Why 6 horses? How did they know when she was dead if she was inside a barrel? Did they stop the horses and open the barrel to check after each "up and down the street"? Did the barrel roll, thereby shredding the wicked witch on the nails, or did it bump around impaling the wicked witch on the nails? How long were the nails? (Long nails would have done the job quicker, but if they wanted to really make her suffer then shorter nails would have been the way to go.) So lacking with details...

 This is a tale played on a radio request session. It was raving favourite for New Zealand children. It contains a number of inappropriate and  graphic  subject matter.  Parts of the narrative are still  chanted by adult children of a certain age
