The above is the video I took during my visit to Hakha in 2007 February. This is one of the ancient Chin traditional ceremony. The ceremonary is to honour the lady who was selected by the local prince as a wife. To honour the lady, the relatives and friends of the lady made this grand ceremony in the past. Nowadays, there is no prince in Chin Land. However, to maintain the ancient tradition, these local people celebrate this ritual during the Chin National Day ceremony. The lady in honour was one of the daughters of a rich business man in Hakha. The lady’s father had to pay for all the expenses for this ceremony.
