Folklore of the Santal Parganas

The Santals are a Munda tribe, a branch of that aboriginal element

which probably entered India from the North East. At the present day

they inhabit the Eastern outskirts of the Chutia Nagpore plateau.


Originally hunters and dwellers in the jungle they are still but

indifferent agriculturists. Like the Mundas and Hos and other

representatives of the race, they are jovial in character, fond of

their rice beer, and ready to take a joke.
