History and Culture of the Oraon Tribe

Abhik Ghosh (Author)
Synopsis This work is a comprehensive study of some aspects of the Oraon life and is one of the major publications after the scholarly and definitive ethnographies of Oraons by Rai Bahadur Sarat Chandra Roy in the early 1900s. The work explores aspects of symbols and the philosophy behind the use of particular theoretical approaches. The symbols used are grounded in everyday life and the daily practices of the Oraons. Using such a perspective as a key symbol, the ethnography of the Oraons is then perceived through such a lens with their idea of giving it a fresh out-look.
