Chapter Summary

This section presents the life history of Mudan Pai's that occur in the book The sun rises: a shaman's chant, ritual exchange, and fertility in the Apatani Valley. The Subu Heniin, however, is the most complete expression of Apatani culture and sets out the larger world in which these other stories are possible. This book begins by describing the Apatani valley and its influence on local life, especially the three topics of the book. It shows that settlement pattern, food production, house and family size can all be seen as adaptations to the physical limitations of a landscape eight kilometres long and four kilometres wide. The book also explains how the physical boundaries of the valley play a role in the formation of Apatani cosmology and ethnic identity.
