This book is an anthropological account of the tribe, Ho in Orissa. The Ho have migrated from the neighbouring districts of Bihar and are settled in Mayurbhanj district of Orissa. They continue to live amidst other local tribal populations like the Santal, Bathudi and Kharia etc. and most of the times in multi-ethnic villages, Basically the Ho are settled agriculturists and have stepped into industrial labour in recent times. "The book, a monograph in the real sense, consists of social organisation, economic pursuits, political organization, religion and rituals of the Ho in Orissa." The on-going developmental programmes and their effects in one block, which was studied intensively, have been described also; and finally, the remarkable changes in various facets of their life are brought out. An endeavour in this study has been made to record the traditional Ho culture in Orissa, and the forces that change it through time.Printed Pages: 112.
