Chapter Summary

When a nyibu stands on the lapang and chants the Subu Heniin during a Murung festival, the unspectacular and calm ambience belies the complexity and importance of what is happening. Taking that scene as a focal point, this book has tried to unravel its several strands-chant, feast, ritual specialist, his performance and his speech-and to understand their significance. This final chapter draws together the observations made about these individual topics in order to highlight the conclusions of the book as a whole. Fertility, another striking feature of the Apatani valley, is also a recurring theme of this book. The chapter summarises the changes taking place in the Murung and reflects on its possible future.

Keywords: Apatani valley; Murung festival; nyibu; Subu Heniin
