Nyishi Customs, Folklore and Language

Ramachandra Chutia (Author)
Synopsis The Nyishis or the Nishangs are inhabitants of a vast stretch of area in the Lower Subansiri district and some parts of the Upper Suibansiri district of Arunachal Pradesh.  The community was referred to as Dafla by people and some authors in the past.  However, now this name is considered derogatory by the community and Nyishi or Nishi is the preferred name of the tribe.  The author shares with us his personal views and experiences, gathered from the time he spent amidst them.  He has given us a very clear and authentic description about their habits, lifestyle, traditional customs and practices.  This book is essentially based on facts and is likely to be an interesting source of knowledge on the Nyishi tribe, both for the scholarly as well as the general reader.  Apart from the text there are some colourful pictures of the Nyishis captured during their festive mood that will appeal to everyone.
