Beschreibung:

This book is an attempt to provide a systematic Account of the Khasi people, their manners and customs, their ethnological affinities, their Laws and institutions, their Religious beliefs, their Folk lore, their Theories as to their origin, and their language. In 1903 Sir Bampfylde Fuller, then chief Commissioner of Assam, proposed and the Government of India sanctioned the preparation of a series of monographs on the more important Tribes and castes of the Khasi race. Major Gurdon, who was the Superintendent of Ethnography in Assam, and enjoyed a long and close acquaintance with the Khasi Tribe undertook to describe the inhabitants of the Khasi hills whom he called ?a tribe of independent tartars? The Isolation of the Khasi race, in the midst of a great encircling Population all of whom belong to the Tibetan-Burman Stock and the remarkable feature presented by their Language and institutions, soon attracted the attention of Comparative philologists and ethnologists. It remains to Summarise briefly the Principal distinctive features of this vigorous and sturdy race, who have preserved their independence and their ancestral Institutions through many centuries in the Face of the attractions offered by the Alien forms of culture around t them. The work has detailed out the complete description of primitive customs and manners. It is an excellent example of Research and well fitted to stand at the head of a series which may be expected to make an important contribution to the data of anthropology. Printed Pages: 254.
