The people and the tribes of Manipur include Meiteis, Nagas and Kuki-Chin-Mizo groups and other colourful communities, which have lived in complete harmony for centuries. These are the people whose folklore, myths and legends, dances, indigenous games and martial arts, exotic handlooms and handicrafts are invested with the mystique of nature and an indefatigable "joie de vivre". The wonders are never ending, the place is Manipur
