Abstract

Folktales and legends are often emic narratives of history, mirrors and expressions of people's experiences and also rationales for socio-cultural practices. The fundamental concern of this chapter is in using such perceptions of history to understand their resonance within local meanings attached to land and waterscapes in the Nicobar Islands.
