The unwritten subjective and intuitive nature of origin of life since believed by all society that is generally regarded as myth. Oraons myth and creation of life since heard of thousands years.

Although they are migrated but also they could not forgotten their own cultural activity. Especially we have studied their myth and related tales for understanding how they improvise the tales of myth and convey it to the other people.
