Mizo indigenous games promote camaraderie and brotherhood

The Northeast Dialogue


The Mizo indigenous games promote camaraderie and brotherhood, where even the losing team enjoys the spirit of the game.

Indigenous Peoples, before colonization, led full, rich, balanced lives. Generally, there was plenty of time for reinforcing, adapting, and growing their cultures and recreational activities such as working on protocols, songs, dances, storytelling, carving, weaving, making drums and rattles, visiting, and playing games.

Sports and games have always been an integral part of India’s rich culture and history. Many indigenous people see their traditional games as a strong indicator that their culture can survive. In this way traditional games are not only helping indigenous youth to get physically fit but also inspiring older members of the indigenous community.

Indigenous games are a very important part of a people’s heritage and culture. They preserve age- old traditions and stories of the people group. When participating in indigenous games, one can begin to understand the social construct of a particular culture and history of the people who invented and continue to invent and participate in indigenous games.
