Drawing on ethnographic study and the narratives of local storytellers, Jacques Ivanoff discusses the oral literature of the Moken sea gypsy people of the Thai-Burma littoral. A long epic, Nonya, and some 40 legends, tales, myths and sacred songs are retold and collated. The final chapter discusses the history of the Moken and the context of their unique identity. With notes, glossary, bibliography and index.
