Sikpui Ruoi is a post-harvest festival. It is celebrated when the community had a good harvest. The Hmar Inpui (apex body of the Hmar tribe) has accepted December 5 as the offical date to celebrate Sikpui Ruoi.
Butukhuonglawm is the pre-harvest or planting season festival. It used to be celebrated in the fields itself when one farmer will lead the rest by beating a drum. The others while doing their work would then sing the Butukhuonglawm song.

Dar lam and Parton lam are dances involving rhythmic beating of the drums.
