People and Traditional Dresses
The people living in Changlang District are of many colourful tribal groups. They are Tangsas, Singphos, Tutsas, Lisu (Yobin) and their sub-tribes. The Tangsa tribe is the major tribe which comprises of many sub-tribes. The people of Changlang is well known for weaving which is a part of every household. Weaving has played an important role in displaying the culture and traditions of each tribe. Every tribe has their own unique designs on their dresses for both men and women. The Tangsas and Singphos men generally wear woven chequer pattern lungi (Khaithung) of black and green colour, lined with red, yellow and white yarn and shirt (Samtong), bag (Khak), and a turban (Khuphok). The original dress of Tangsa and Tutsa men consist of woven loin cloth which is called a Lenguti(Rai). In earlier days the women wore a very typical a small piece of woven dress which measured 39 inch in length and 12 inch breadth with geometrical pattern such as Zig-Zag band with internal repetition, rectangular cross hatching chequer and lozenges which was worn around the waist down to the knee bone. This beautiful piece of dress of their own make is called Khosa or Khatsa with a colour combination red, green, black, white & blue. A unique two piece woven cloth with colour combination of blue, yellow, red & white measuring 34 inch in length and 18 inch breadth decorated with a rough band of needle work sewn across the breadth. This dress was worn around both the shoulders. But with the march of time all the tribes have changed their costume greatly. They have experimented their dresses with varities of colour combination but using the same age old pattern and motif which resulted in a very beautiful eye catching costume for both men and women. The people of Changlang District loves their traditional costumes and proudly showcase them during occasions like festivals, weddings etc.
