A pioneering piece of ethnohistory uses a variety of interdisciplinary means to reconstruct the oral history of an important tribe in North East India i.e. NYISHI. It traces the impact of misnomer nomenclature labelled on the tribe throughout century and psychic agony inherent in the transformation of people under the twin impact of reign of the Ahom and colonialism. It analyses how these factors shaped and reflected the society as static and stagnant. In reconstructing the history of traditional political institution that have been wrongly interpreted and understood have been systematically re examined to attain the objective study.

Author powerfully combines analyses of medieval writings eighteenth century texts archival records local and colonial records and extensive ethnographic field work and attempt to piece together oral history and oral traditions of the NYISHI people which will appeal to the general reader intellectuals specialists policy maker professionals and researchers.
