Chiru Tribe, Manipur

The state of Manipur in north eastern India provides shelter a number of tribes and tribal communities. One of the popular Manipur tribes is the Chiru Tribe. Steeped in history and mythology, Chiru tribal community inhabit various districts of Manipur – Senapati, Tamenglong and Bishnupur. The word 'Chiru' means 'the seed of a plant'. In terms of lifestyle and culture, the Chiru tribe have some similarity with the Naga tribal community. Due their distinguished physical features, anyone can recognise the people belong to the Chiru tribal community.

Chirus have contributed to the Manipuri culture. These tribals have their own customs and traditions both in dance and musical recitals. Chiru tribes of Manipur follow unique living style patterns. In this tribal community, bachelors and unmarried women are provided with separate quarters. The people of the Chiru tribe actually have their connections with Kuki family tribal group.

Most of the people belonging to the Chiru tribes have adopted farming as their major profession. The rugged terrains of the mountains prove to be just perfect for doing shifting and wet farming. Chiru tribal community is also involved in the growth and trading of fruits like bananas, oranges, lemon and papaya. These fruits do not only serve their food requirements but also help them earn. In addition, the Chiru tribes of Manipur are also known to specialise in cottage industries. The tribe prepare a range of household products from cane.

People of the Chiru tribal community also display great craftsmanship in the field of weaving and carpentry. In a nutshell, Chiru tribe has greatly contributed in enriching the cultural ethnicity of whole of Manipur in northeastern India.

Manipur is cultural and religious place. chiru tribe is interesting.

the content of the story is partially correct. chiru is one among the REMs TRIBE i.e similar with KOMs,aimol,koirengs,purums(earlier under KOMREMS). They are same group of family of HALAMS in tripura and the FALAMs in MYANMAR.
The derivation of word CHIRU can be contested. and it may not be the seed of a plant..since no tribe name is derived from plants or animals..

Komrem was an spiritual union... its a relic as of now... komrem was formed to unite diffrent minor tribe in the early 50s for religious and spiritual growth under the banner KRBCA.linguistically, so called komrem tribes share little affinity among themselves... there s lot of difference between diff tribes in culture, tradition and custom. each tribe, say Chiru, Aimol, Purum, Koireng belongs to diff category.

wecare surrogacy January 11, 2013 at 2:21 AM  


A couple may be infertile due to infection in either man or woman or both as well. The general term used for treatment of infertility is Assistant Reproductive Technology (ART) which refers to methods used to achieve pregnancy by artificial or partially artificial methods. Gestational surrogacy India


Reports says that nearly 30 million couples in India suffer from infertility and the emotional breakdown and disappointment of couples because of infertility affect their general health, relationships and living style too, making infertility more than a mere disease and hence infertility treatment India
gains utmost importance.

Sankar Kumar March 22, 2013 at 5:46 PM  

If a couple is pro-life, that's fine, but if they think that being pro-life is simply a question of maximizing the number of pregnancies in the world at whatever cost and in whatever way we can imagine, then they're not grappling with the issues seriously at all and should be told as much. Here i suggest couples to go INDIA for IVF surrogacy, then you must search for Surrogacy India, Surrogate mother India, IVF India, IVF clinic India & IVF cost india. I found Go Surrogacy for this treatment in India. Hope you also like these.

Actually if we look into the history of the Hmars many tribes under Halam in Tripura and komrem in Manipur once lived in Ruong le vaisuo a confluence of a river Barak(tuiruong in hmar) and khuga river(tuivai in hmar) they called themselves according to their own clan names and as a whole they are Hmars..but the british raj and the bengalis referred to them as kukis..after staying for a long time in ruong le vaisuo,many clans of the Hmars migrated to Tripura,meghalaya,manipur and assam and there also they are still refer to them as kukis or their clan names..the helpless hmars have no other option but to accept the records officially..
