They have their own culture, language, and religion since time immemorial. The Boros are generally cultivators. Their livelihood depends on cultivation, farming and hunting. They cultivate different crops as their required related to the season in their daily life. The present study titled, Material Culture of The Boros: With Special Reference to Cultivation is a study on traditional agricultural tools use by Boro communities in the cultivation. They use a variety of tools as per their requirement and make those tools at home by themselves from natural resources. But at present, the use of traditional tools are decreasing due to the influence of technological devices. The use of traditional tools is a part of the culture.
