Abstract: This article provides an accessible, sustinct article on an area of research that examines American folklore and folklife. It depicts how migration, atachhment to place and sence of history shaped the image of Amecica, forming miscellaneous culture, traditions and making influence of mass culture on once-unique local spaces. In the United States folklore emerged as a new field of learning in the 19th century. American folklore society underwent a considerable transformation from a loose and floundering organization to a vigorous and solvent society. With the expansion of Europe in the 15th and the 16th century, European colonizers transported folktales to the continents of North and South America and Africa. Native traditions, tales and songs of American Indians were found before the newcomers settled in America. A new development in historical reconstruction is now emerging among American folklorists who are synthesizing folkloric and historical techniques. The possibilities of using oral sources and utilizing traditional recollections to reconstruct folk attitudes and events of local history and the recent past are demonstrated by various folklore researchers. American folklore is an echo of the past, but at the same time it is also a vigorous voice of the present. In other words, folklore was to take its place alongside literature, music and the arts as a controlled expression of everyday life and the ideals of American people
