Abstract: Studies on material cultures of aboriginal tribes of Andaman & Nicobar Archipelago are rather scanty. Nicobari culture represents true psyche of the Mongoloid race and their cultural life is illustrative. They show excellent craftsmanship in making various tribal artifacts and are skilled artisans, house builders, carpenters, carvers and potters. Ethnobotanical information of Nicobari tribe pertaining to hut building, canoe making, brooms & mats preparation, sitting stage making and pandanus fruit processing are presented besides highlighting their ethnoecological and cultural influences.
