This volume presents different genres of Mizo songs and folk-tales representing the uniqueness and salient features of the Mizo-folk . The main aim of this work is to highlight the uniqueness and salient features of Mizo folk-literature comprising folk narratives and traditional proverbs, sayings, songs, tales, nursery rhymes, riddles, war slogans, sacrificial chants etc.. The examples of written literature, mainly song and poems, are included in this volume. The dialects and languages spoken by tribals in India are very large in number. The literary compositions in most of them have survived in oral form though some tribal languages have taken to writing as a means of recording literary compositions. Conventionally, they have been perceived as mere anthropological curiosity, or at best a source for oral history.
