The Hmars are divided into several clans and sub-clans though there is no discrimination on the basis of such division in their society now. However, in earlier times there used to be clan wars with each clans occupying a separate village. It is for this reason that there are some Hmar villages which still retained their clan-village names. Eg. are: Khawzawl, Zote, Biete, Khawbung and Sungte villages. Following are the clans and sub-clans of the Hmar tribe.

  9. FAIHRIEM le VANGCHHIA hai te ti unau an lo ni zing an naw maw?

    Wikipedia....says

    Vangchhia is the name of a town in the state of Mizoram, India.

    Vangchhia or Vangsie is also the name of one of the numerous clans of the Mizo tribal groups. Genealogically, they along with related clans like the Khawlhring, Pautu, Faihriem , etc. trace their descend from Chunthang, the son of Berhva. According to the Vaiphei tribe, Berhva / Chunthang is regarded as descended from Khauza (Buite). Khauza is said to have two elder brother viz. Khaute/ Khauva (progenitor of the Khaute, Ralte, Duhlian, Keivom, Neitham, Neihsial etc.) and Khaupho ( Hoinge, etc). And they are all said to be descended from Vaiphei, who was also regarded as the progenitor of the Suantak, Sizang, Thangkhal, Sailo, Thangluah, Rivung, Baite, Suante, Ngawn etc.

  13. I have notice that 'lal' want a correction by changing sakechep to sakachep.as a sakechep mi i like to remain it un -changed.since i notice that sakachep seem to be a surename.actually we sakechep community we never put our tribe or sub tribe after our name but we put by our clan name like lal sumtinkha etc not lal sakachep and we never know that sakachep is also a clan of sakechep subtribe.

  15. Dont post anything about Sakachep tribe without knowing clearly. Don't created problem among us. Saithuvai/Saith clan is chief of Sakachep tribe but there is not in your posted and many more clans. We/Sakachep are not Hmar tribe. Hope you know my point. Thank you.

    1. @Atoz, I belong to Sakachep clan and my grandparents and parents are very clear about their identity as a Hmar tribe. For some of us, it is still a debatable issue. For most of us who lived in Curachandpur area we identified ourselves as Hmar people. So, please try not to create unnecessary diversion. I think we need get our history right.
