Mizoram Introduction


The former Lushai Hills District, is bordered by Bangladesh on one side and Burma on the other. Related to the Shan, Mizos are a group of tribes (Lushais, Hmars, Pawis) that came relatively recently to India. They started raiding tea plantations in 1871. The British retaliated and established control over the area in 1872, but peace was not attained until 1892, when the last rebellion was crashed. The British then introduced the inner-line system. Only missionaries were allowed through. As a result 95% of the population is Christian and literacy has reached 86% in some tribes.

Fairs and Festivals 

Mim Kut 
Also known as Maize Festival is usually celebrated during the month of August and September, after the harvest of Maize. Mimkut is celebrated with great fanfare by drinking rice-beer, singing, dancing and feasting. Samples of the previous year's harvest are consecrated to the departed souls of the community. 

Chapchar Kut 
Another festival celebrated sometime in March after completion of their most ardous task of jhum operation, i.e., jungle-clearing. This is a spring festival celebrated with great eclat. 

Pawl Kut 
This is Harvest Festival - celebrated during December to January after the harvests are over. It is perhaps the greatest festival, with plenty of grains in the barn and all the labours of the year over, what better time is there than this to have a great festival.
