The Social Construction of Symbols, Rituals, Institutions and Folklores, its relation to Worldviews
Walling, Dr A. Wati

 

    

The use, reuse or non-use of a scientifically proven and economically repaying project does not guarantee the success of policy implementation devoid of learning the cultural history of the inhabitants. It is here that the understanding of social construction and the social values from the peoples’ perspective tends to be imperative.

This paper assesses social constructions and its impact on the world views-ecological landscapes of the people and vice-versa. It traverses the historical adherence of ecological adaptability by the inhabitants therefore, a documentation of names given to fields, hills, riverine etc is found. This paper is above all, an enquiry of a micro and localized phenomenon in the Northeastern India and an attempt to achieve a framework to understanding institutions and cultural history for policy appropriation and ecological safeguard. Social construction in the form of symbols, rituals, institutions and folklores are portrayed with the unfolding of the social history of a village called ‘Yimti’ in Nagaland.
