The primary focus of the book is to understand and appreciate the tribe's syncretic worldview and its relation with Ahom and British along with rigorous interpretation of social and economic transformation of the society. So far, no systematic study has been undertaken to understand the history and culture of the Singpho tribe based on historical framework methodology with academic rigor. In this present work, a sincere attempt has been made to give a critical analyses and interpretation of the collected data to establish a new finding, which could add to existing knowledge of history and culture of Arunachal Pradesh. The book attempted to focus on the history, tradition and culture of the Singpho community of Arunachal Pradesh which are hitherto un-tapped or under-tapped.
The book is based on the field work and treated the source materials in accordance with the canons of historical methods with trans-disciplinary approach. The oral traditions data derived from field research are corroborated with available archival documents, archaeology, linguistics and ethnology to reconstruct the tribe history. This book will serve as useful reference to readers irrespective of their professional and personal background for understanding and appreciating the history and culture of the Singpho of Arunachal Pradesh. This book will give a new vista of fact to the existing knowledge and understanding of the socio-magico and religious worldview of the Singpho.
