Chapter Summary

This appendix section of this book titled The Sun Rises A Shamans Chant, Ritual Exchange and Fertility in the Apatani Valley presents the table containing the type and number of Murungs. It also contains the different sources which presents the Murung festival in that year. 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; Murungs; Subu Heniin
