For political purposes some are included along with the Naga generic term in the north and Kuki chins in the South. The Kuki tribes inhabit in all districts of Manipur the Linguistic Survey of India Vol. III Part III carried out by G.A. Grierson and published in 1904 by Govt. of India provides a general idea of the geographical spread of Kukis living space. According to this survey the territory inhabited by the Kuki tribes extends from the Naga hills in the North down into the Sandoway District of Myanmar in the south from the Myattha River in the east almost to the Bay of Bengal in the west. The tribes like Aimol Anal Chiru Chongloi Chothe Hangsing Doungel Gangte Guite Haokip Hmar Kipgen Kom Lhungdim Lamkang Lunkim Changsan Lenthang Thangeo Kolhen Lhangum Lhanghal Milhem Maring Mate Mozo Monshang Paite Sitlhou Lhouvum and Singsit Simte Baite Tarao Touthang Vaphei Zou etc. may be put under one egalitarian ethnic entity called Kukis. However some of these tribes mentioned above have been assimilated into Naga generic term. During First World War the Kuki uprising against the British lasted for three years (1917 1919). In the early 1940's hundreds of Kukis joined the Indian army and fought the British. More than one hundred and fifty INA pensioners are still alive. Both India and Myanmar were given political freedom in 1947. The boundaries lines of the new nations and their states fragmented the traditional Kuki territory. The book encompasses the ethnographic details of the Kuki who are also referred to as Kuki Chins by some ethnologists. 142 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 59266
