Abstract:

The paper is an attempt to enquire into the bioregionalism manifest in the oral songs of Mavilan community. The songs of Mavilan tribe that is settled mostly in Kannur and Kasaragod districts of Kerala are specifically characterised by bioregional elements. Despite being agricultural labourers the tribe maintained an ecocentric world view. Even in their slave-like existence they sustained an intimate land-life relationship. The paper delves into a few songs of the tribe collected from their hamlets within the theoretical framework of ecocriticism in general and bioregionalism and tinai in particular.

Key words: Bioregionalism, oral songs, bioregional elements, ecocriticism, tinai
