Introduction / History

In around 1787 AD, they migrated from a place somewhere around Timaimukh Hills called "Ruong le Vaiso" in their language. Their forefathers are believed to have migrated from Mizoram, travelling from hill to hill through zoom cultivation. Finally, by 1900, some of them reached the place where they are presently located in Aimol Hills in Tengnoupal District, Manipur, India today.
