This collection of folk tales from Arunachal Pradesh has ingenious and hilarious explanations for all kinds of phenomena, from why langurs have black faces, to why tigers have stripes.

Arunachal Pradesh has a rich culture of folk tales, stories that are told and re-told, shared across generations and tribes. The story of the pig and the dog is from the Adi tribe while the story of the monkey is popular in the Nocte tribe.
