This study attempts to put down the symbolic worldviews of the Oraons of Chotanagpur (Bihar, now Jharkhand). Oraon acceptence of their own culture is complex. The symbols used are grounded in everyday life and the daily practices of the Oraons. It covers past accounts, present incidents and future projections. The Oraons are seen to expand their worldviews in space and time and in their incorporation of various religions, communities and cultures around them, thus becoming a more inclusive identity than traditional tribal ones. This book highlights the interplay of cultures and knowledge among Oraons and the outside world and thus underlines the fact that this study is well within the anthrpological enterprise-the study of human beings in time and space.
