People of North East

Manipur is where the Maiteyi Hindus live. They are believed to be the descendents of the Tatars who migrated from North West China during 13th and 14th centuries. Then they accepted Hinduism.

In Tripura the Tribalism and Hinduism co-exist. The temple priests are not Brahmins, but the tripuris form the tribes. The majority of the tribal populace of Nagaland and Misoram are now Christians.
