An ideal meeting ground for diverse races, Assam gave shelter to streams of human waves carrying with them distinct cultures and trends of civilization. Austro-Asiatics, Negritos, Dravidians, Alpines, Indo-mongoloids, Tibeto-Burmese and Aryans penetrated into Assam through different routes and contributed in their own way towards the unique fusion of a new People in assam community which came to be known in later history as the Assamese. Assam, however, remained predominantly a land of the Tibeto-Burmese.The vast section of the people of Assam belong to either to this stock or owe their origin to the fusion of this stock with other racial groups.
