About this Item

Contents: 1. The tribal people: an introduction. 2. Lahul: its history and geography. 3. The people. 4. Religion and beliefs. 5. The Bodhs. 6. Swanglas. 7. Lahaulas. 8. Khampas. Appendices. Select bibliography. Index. Lahaul, the fertile and richer part of the Lahul Spiti district of Himachal Pradesh lies ensconced in the folds of Greater and Mid-Himalayas. The enchanting land is home to Bhot, Lahaula and Swangla tribes interspersed with negligible sprinkling of Khampas, Jad and Lamba yet another scheduled tribe. Its population presents a pleasing blend of autochthonous people and immigrants from different regions and climes. Various cultural streams which poured into the region from different directions have created a delightful whirlpool of social life. Fortunately, the region was only partially Sanskritised with the likeable result that till date the folk culture remains its dominant theme. The physical settings have also played a significant role in the moulding of its composite cultural mosaic. Known for beauty and vibrant community life, the region boasts of some of the world famous monasteries and temples a few of which are veritable treasure troves of Buddhist literature. Its rich cultural heritage not only deserves preservation but proper recognition as well so that the process of positive interaction between the main stream and the tribal cultures goes on smoothly to the common advantage of both.
