I want to now turn to a specific example of the relative fixity or flexibility in oral literature. Sherzer (1987 Sherzer (, 1990) has discussed such variation among the Kuna of Panama. He notes that among the Kuna there are two general categories of texts: those that are relatively flexible and dependent on the situation at hand, and those that are fixed or relatively fixed. The first type includes narratives and stories told in gathering houses. Reference: Keeping the Word: On Orality and Literacy (With a Sideways Glance at Navajo).

Originally published in 1987, the aim of this book is to advance a fresh perspective on the presentation, philology, analysis, and interpretation of oral literature and verbal art. Developed through commentaries and analysis of a range of texts from Native American communities, past and present, this original approach is centered on discourse, which the contributors take as being the richest point of intersection among language, culture, society, and individual expression. In discourse, individuals draw on their own artistry at the same time as they draw on the special and unique resources of the language and culture of their communities.
