Celebrating Indigenous people of the Legendary Tribes of North East India – the Tai Tribe, Faneng Eco Village and Naharkatia, the State of Assam, Incredible India!

The Tai people of Asia are a sub-race of the Mongoloid stock of human race who are found to spread from the West Garo Hills of North East India to the Hanan islands of South China Sea, covering a vast area of seven countries namely Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Malaysia, Vietnam and China.

There are around 2 million people of Tai origin who live in North East India. Ahoms, a group of Tai people, came to Assam in the early 13th century, fighting their way to the Brahmaputra valley in 1228 following their Prince, Sukaphaa. Initially they spoke the Tai language and practised Buddhism as their faith. But after the first generation, the Ahoms married the local people, Borahi ( a tibeto-Burman ethnic group) & Moran, and they started adopting  the Assamese language. Their Kings and higher officials converted to Hinduism.

Prince Sukaphaa established his first state in the kingdom of Assam in 1253. The Ahom people kept good records of their past in chronicles called Buranjis. Ahom is the largest group of Tai group in India, settled mainly in Assam.

There are also other groups of Tai people namely Khamti, Phake, Aiton, Turun and Khamyang  who came to the valley at later periods than the Ahoms and made their settlement in various places of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.
