Tribals of Orissa

The supernatural also figures prominently in tribal folklore which is a body of largely verbal literary tradition. These simple folktales are linked to occasion in everyday life – sowing, harvesting, birth, marriage and death. Folktales also values dear to the tribal’s heart, but many of them offer an explanation for natural phenomenon day and night,
thunderstorms, animal behavior. With the tribals living so close to nature, it could not be otherwise.
