(p.17) Chapter 2 Economic Life
The Kamar

S.C. Dube

Oxford University Press

This chapter takes a look at the economic life of the Kamars. It discusses their socio-economic life, starting with the organization of their tribal settlements. Kamar settlements are generally at a distance away from the village—normally separated by a small forest, and certain factors are involved in selecting a site for their settlements. It then describes the houses, household possessions, and daily activities of the Kamars. From here, the chapter turns to the Kamar economics, which is currently in transition due to the influence of foreign cultures and their complex economic systems. This chapter also studies the different sources of livelihood of the Kamars, including hunting, food-gathering, agriculture, and labour for wages. Their expenditures are also examined.

Keywords:   economic life, socio-economic life, tribal settlements, houses, household possessions, daily activities, economy system, sources of livelihood, expenditures
