People of Tripura

The people of Tripura are mostly tribal. The tribes of Tripura are of Tibeto-Burmese origin.The Tripuris, the largest tribe live in the west while sizeable numbers of Reangs and Jamatias live in the north and south respectively. The Tripuris live in elevated houses made of bamboo called 'Tong’ to keep away wild animals. The population is largely Bengali in spite of 19 Scheduled Tribes. The other tribes are Chakma, Halam and Usai. Some of the tribes still cling on to quaint customs like floating colourful parasols in ponds to honour the dead!
