Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the experience of the authors in the Hill Tiwa villages. It talks about the religions followed by the people and the architecture of the houses in the villages. The chapter relates the interaction of authors with Mr.Chandra Korai. Hill Tiwa villages are mostly situated in clearings in the forest, with houses and fenced yards facing each other in two rows along the village road. The houses are on an earthen platform, with a small veranda in front, which is used for weaving and storing bamboo water containers. Generally the house consists of three rooms: a guestroom with a fireplace, a living room with cooking fire and a storage room. The dormitory is used for the young men's association of the village and as a meeting place for the village council. The Hill Tiwas have their original ancestor beliefs and they worship deities in their own house.
