Hmar_Population According to 2001 census, there are 42,933 in 35 villages in the southern region of Manipur, at Tipaimukh and Churachandpur. They speak Hmar language and converse well in Meiteilon. They also have populations in Cachar, North Cachar and Aizwal district of Mizoram. 

They are one of the highly educated Christian communities of Manipur tribes. They enjoy zu, home brewed rice bear, but Christianity has restricted it and replaced with tea in rituals. Earlier Hmars worshiped spirits, the mountains, the rocks and rivers. The first Christian missionary to the Souther Manipur, Watkin Roberts of Wales arrived in 1910 in a Hmar village at Senvon.

The Hmars trace their origin to Sinlung, the location of which is hotly debated. The Hmars are generally medium statured (5- 5.6 Ft), sturdy, dark haired, brown skinned, and known for their bravery. The Hmars still treasure and garner their traditional arts, including folk dance, folk songs, handi crafts, etc., representing scenes of adventure, battle, love, victory, and other experiences throughout history. Hmars have high literacy rate (79.8% as per 2001 census).
