Abstract
Folk literature is a valuable wealth for any tribe or race through which the social, culture and religious aspect of life of past and in history get reflected. A kind of particular folk writing has been prevailing in the missing ethnic tribe, the second largest tribe residing in Assam. Among these writings, the songs enriched with heart touching tune are profusely found. Out of them, some songs are related with different programmes and some are associated with the union and separation of the lovers. There prevails one kind of song which can be divided into two parts on the basis of gesture and whose words and tone are heart-touching. On the other hand, Ko:ni:nam Ni:tom and Lotta So:nam songs highlight the occupational and working life of the Mising community. The treasure of Mising folk songs is enriched by the popular Oi:ni:tom which is presented by the youth and maiden, making it artfully playful and humorous to some extent. These songs, despite contributing to the history of Mising tribe, added a form to the Assamese culture. Thus, on the basis of the disappearing and prevalent songs in the contemporary period, the present paper attempts to highlight this discussion.
