Synopsis: Though devoted specifically to the life history of the anecdote folklorists know as Tale Type 1676A/Motif K1682.1, Big 'Fraid and Little 'Fraid, this study more generally assess the manner in which the circuitous epistemology of the tale indices compiled by, or in emulation of, Antti Aarne and Stith Thompson covertly subverted Richard Dorson's controversial conclusions concerning the origins of Afro-American oral narratives, as well as the arguments of those who have challenged his position. In rewriting the accepted account of a single story, then, this essay simultaneously discovers a more fundamental and far-reaching misunderstanding of type and motif indices as aids in identifying the provenience of folktales.
