Nat was a tribe of aborigines who like the Kanjars, lead a nomadic life. They avoided houses and preferred the shade of trees, or light temporary habitations, to a fixed and permanent home. These two races, although their modes of life are so much alike, are nevertheless quite distinct in India. It is generally believed that the vagabonds of Europe have been originated from the Nat tribe. The Nats eat all kinds of flesh except beef, but do not drink stimulating liquors or alcohols.
Nat is said to a class of actor. In popular acceptation it comprehends jugglers, buffoons, and persons practicing sleight of hand, and exhibiting feats of agility.
