Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled The Sun Rises: A Shamans Chant, Ritual Exchange and Fertility in the Apatani Valley contains the table of contents, acknowledgement, a note on orthography and the list of figures and charts. The book demonstrates the paradox that in order to understand a local culture, it looks beyond what is local. It contributes to a comparative study of ritual and mythology in the extended eastern Himalayas. The book has tried to unravel its several strands-chant, feast, ritual specialist, his performance and Subu Heniins speech-and to understand their significance.

Keywords: Apatani valley; ritual specialist; sun rises
