The tribal communities of Northeast India are very colourful and vibrant with their unique lifestyle. Textile garments of the tribal communities of this region represent some specialty of their own. The Boro-Kacharis also wear specially designed textile materials with varied colours. Their women are expert weavers and prepare all the necessary dress materials in handlooms till today. Their dresses have been beautifully designed by themselves with traditional and modern motifs. Rearing and spinning of silk are the most ancient tradition of the Boro women. Boro women use hand made unstitched dress covering the whole body from shoulder to foot (ankle) which display beautiful motifs all over the body.This book gives a vivid picture of the Boro culture with special reference to their famous perennial designs of textile. It is a matter of pride for Boro women to make their own cloth in their traditional handloom.The present Volume has three important features first; it is the outcome of documentation of Boro Textile designs under the headings 1. Arnai Design, 2. Chader and Shawl design 3.Dhokna Langa design, 4. Dokhra Ogrong design, 5. Gamcha design, 6. Phali design- by two women scholars from North East IndiaŚRani Hazarika Kakati, faculty member of Department of Anthropology, Guwahati University, Guwahati and Kabita Boro, a research scholar of the same department. Thus it's a study of two women scholars on an aspect of heritage associated with tribal women of Northeast India. Secondly, while anthropology is usually considered as a study of the 'others', in the present case particularly the second author (Kabita Boro) is herself belongs to Boro tribe. Thus in way, it's the study of 'us' and not of 'them'. This may be regarded as an example of ethnography in a post-colonial situation where the subaltern is his/her own spokesperson.Printed Pages: 112 with 90 col.illustrations. 101357
